    Is this ok........or not....... HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\cryptography\rng\seed
    This showed as a data mismatch between Windows API and the Raw Hive Data..........

    In case it helps for discussion what "Scanning found this"....Rootkit revealer [​IMG]

    If so....I reckon we can attempt to determine or focus on the seed
    key that was possibly being altered during the scan :doubt:

    Introduction
    Edit
    additional info if this is indeed Rootkit Revealer related:
    It is mentioned numerous times via a search @ the Sysinternal\Rootkit Revealer Forums that the crypto\rng\seed is a common false positive :doubt:
