Default New Registry Keys

These keys were added to my registry recently. They have no values and dont seem to be a problem. I've ran all the usual AV and Malware tests and nothing comes up.

I think they might be from one of my programs but I am not sure which one. Do these look familliar to anyone?

Why would there be an entry for HK local machine in the HK current user?

Is it some sort of back up?

Is that 'OrganizationDefaults' folder also in the lower HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE?

The two most recent that I can think of are Agnitum Outpost Firewall and EasyCleaner by ToniArts.

Both reputible to be sure.

@TimW I have run RegScrub and found no problems.

Here's what I found on the 'OrganizationDefaults' folder that seems to be for nothing:
http://www.qtforum.org/post/65996/QSettings-what-is-
Quote:
OrganizationDefaults.html
Qt Forum - programming with C++ and Qt QtForum.org Qt Qt Programming QSettings, what is "OrganizationDefaults"
QSettings creates a Windows registry entry named OrganizationDefaults but then never uses it, as far as I can tell. What's it for?
This explains Qt: http://doc.trolltech.com/qsa-1.1.4/qsa-2.html
Something you installed recently put those entries there. I guess they are harmless? :
Bet matt.chug would know!

They seem harmless as they have no values and don't seem to change from day to day.

I'll keep an eye on them though.

Thanks Toni and Tim.

@ Maybe Matt will see this and let us all know.

Default Re: New Registry Keys

Is QT anything like Auto CAD?

It looks much more involved but seems pretty cool.

BTW I still dont know what program I might have that would have installed OrganizationDefaults as it looks like it is part of C++ and I don't run any that might use it.

There was mention of Adobe on the link Toni provided and I recently installed Foxit Reader, could be something to do with that.
