Why are some folders yellow and other grey/yellow when using regedit?

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
When comparing 2 different registry using regedit, one machine all folders are yellow. On another machine, some folders are yellow while others are ghost/yellow or grey/yellow. The permissions seem the same between the keys. What does the ghost/yellow color signify?
