No, just very superficial mods. When I merge, if there is a conflict

That is what I was thinking.

I think so. I removed the registry entry and rebooted and the problem was
the same. I thought that a bit odd that Explorer started the Cache on its
own so quickly in the login process. Maybe because I have some folder
shortcuts on my desktop?
I noticed some of the code is based on registry entries the installer does
not create. So you probably have created these manually for testing only.
Have you tried running without them?
