> HKCU\Software\Microsoft\ActiveMovie\devenum\{E0F158E1-CB04-11D0-BD4E-00A0C911CE86}\Default DirectSound Device
> HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Multimedia\msacm.msgsm610
> HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Multimedia\ActiveMovie

Running the devenum tests leaves some cached info there, not much we
can do about it..

One thing I wonder about though, are the keys I mentioned persistent?
Or are they gone after a reboot?
