Decryption of windows 10 registry [Solved]

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi there, i had an idea about being able to pin any file to the windows 10 start menu.

At first, i searched around and found a registry tweak they said would enable just that. But Didn't work.

Now i see there are a couple of registry keys directly related to the pinned items in:

HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\UserAssist

Process Monitor shows me that everytime i pin/unpin an item, a registry key in there is modified, the trouble is that the text doesn't make sense.

Example:

{1NP14R77-02R7-4R5Q-O744-2RO1NR5198O7}\JvaqbjfCbjreFuryy\i1.0\cbjrefuryy_vfr.rkr

It's a binary string, and i found a post in another site that claims to be a decrypter for exactly this, but it's autohotkey.

My hope is that if i can encrypt a file path, and write it to registry, im able to see it in the start menu..

This registry worked for exe and folders:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\PintoStartScreen]
@="{470C0EBD-5D73-4d58-9CED-E91E22E23282}"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\PintoStartScreen]
@="{470C0EBD-5D73-4d58-9CED-E91E22E23282}"

And this for shortcuts:

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\lnkfile\shellex\ContextMenuHandlers\PintoStartScreen]
@="{470C0EBD-5D73-4d58-9CED-E91E22E23282}"
