  1. Windows drops the regkeys into the wrong location to provide 32-bit compatibility. (HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Wow6432Node\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell) Use this file to correct the registration issue. ---------------------- Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell\Open CCleaner...] [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\CLSID\{645FF040-5081-101B-9F08-00AA002F954E}\Shell\Open CCleaner...\command] @="C:\\Program Files (x86)\\CCleaner\\CCleaner.e
  2. Windows stores the data in the legacy "Wow6432Node" key under HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT. I'm assuming this is because the installer app is 32-bit.

  3. I have determined what the issue is: In Word 2003 the settings AND MRU are stored in the same Registry key. When CCleaner runs "Office 2003" cleating it deletes this key instead of just clearing the MRU portion of the key. This causes the Word 2003 settings to revert to defaults. The key in question is: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Word\Data You'll notice the MRU data is appended to the end and is stored as Unicode. The behaviour needs to be changed to not delete this key for this version and instead rewrite the MRU section. ..this too a while to figu
