Something in my Reg. Can you help me?

    Have just installed the new Adware build (Ver. 6 Build 181) and I was
    truly amazed at the difference between 5 & 6. The new one picked up on
    several things the other one hadn't. In any case, below is one of the
    things it picked up on. It concerned me a bit, and it looks like I
    might do some damage if I removed it.

    Please help....

    The "regfile\shell\open\command" entry should be:

    regedit.exe "%1"

    Open your registry editor, export JUST the "regfile"
    key (this will include all of it's subkeys) to a text file,
    and post the contents here. It will be under:

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT
    +regfile
