Exclamation What is Lazyware?
I found a really bizarre registry entry called "lazyware" with subcategories containing values like "bU5kw0ew4HmIU". A Google search listed a game called "Immortal Kombat", which I have never heard of.

Can this key be safely deleted and what is it?

What's the full path to the registry value? I have some other hits too, one to Winamp.

what is lazyware
I am not sure what it is, I have found it in my registry a number of times tho, and I delete the entire key whenever it is there. It doesn't seem to have any affect on any of my programs when I delete it from the registry,... Problem is, it always seems to reappear anywhere from a day to a week later..Then I delete it again. If anyone knows what in the he** this is, please let me know.

Lazyware is a type of shareware. It works only at certain times until you register it. For example, the application works great from Monday to Friday and them becomes lazy and refuses to work on weekends. Registered versions have no limits at all.
