HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager\CheckBadA

Are these files are leftover by the various applications which has been
un-installed and if so, is it safe to remove these ones.
Thanks.

hkey_local_machine\system\current control set\control\session
manager\checkbadapps

This appears to be a list of applications which Windows checks for and
finding
these entries does not mean that these applications ever existed on the
subject
computer.
Some of the applications found in this registry key are:
Shred.exe
Wipeinfo.exe
Secure.exe

On some win98 installations, there are 2 SessionManager keys so you have to
choose the one that contains the keys AppPatches, CheckBadApps and
CheckVerDLLs.

Session Manager subkey w/wo space
Through an apparent design bug (or else interesting "feature"), you are
likely to have two separate Session Manager subkeys in your registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Session Manager, and
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager,
the difference being the presence or absence of a space between the words
"Session" and "Manager".

The original subkey -- the one with a space -- contains system start-up
information such as environment variables and cache size. We plan to cover
this in more detail in a future tip.

The one without a space contains one or more "CheckBadApps" subkeys, and
these are used for the detection of non-compliant applications. It is a
matter of opinion whether this should be classified as system start-up
information as well.

No fix is recommended.

Don't remove them.
They are not meant to be on your hard drive, which is why they are
there in the Registry. You should not have any of them.

My search of the KB yielded nothing for "CheckBadApps".

Hi Jack,

I am vaguely familiar with them. They have been there since Win95.

CheckBadApps has a list of applications that are known to have
problems running in Windows.
CheckBadApps400 has a list of applications that are known to have
problems running under IE4
