    After installation of NOD32 3.0.667, I ran Registry Booster 2 to clean the registry. Along with other unwanted registry entries, Registry Booster detected the following registry entries related to NOD32.


    Can anybody tell me if it is safe to delete these registry entries ?
    I did it, and found no issue or error problem with NOD32 after that. It seemed to be fine. But still I would like a confirmation what these entries do for NOD32, and is it ok to remove them (while NOD32 is still installed in the system)

    There is no problem with deleting those Nod32 entries or any OpenWithList entries for that matter. Keep in mind that if or when you use the import\export feature of Nod32 again, that OpenWithList egui.exe entry will return. An entry will also occur for your browser whenever you wish to view a particular XML file with your browser.

    The bottom line is that any OpenWithList entries are harmless and will not cause issues if removed but do expect them to return from time to time given the reasons above.
