As I understand it, these keys should be generated automatically when
first used. That is, if used through the proper functions like
SHGetFolderPath. Programs like this, that do the registry lookup
themselves will have to cope with that. In my case I have tested
hundreds of windows programs, likely that one of them made this key to
be created.
