  1. Why is this folder/key completely missing from my Registry and what does it do??
    Would it cause system instability???

    Im concerned about this, can someone give me a hand, please.

    Used to identify an ActiveX control
    Represents a unique id for a software application or application component

    Note: I would find this extrememly strange not to be present.
