I copied the keynames from regedit.exe by right click choosing "Copy Key Name". So I think they should be there. I also refreshed in it. I guess it may still be of some accessibility reason.

    As far as I remember, Windows started "virtualising" filesystem and registry access with Vista / 2003 Server, depending on flags in the EXE header, WOW64, user privileges, and perhaps some other factors. I.e. things are not were you see or search them, some code by Microsoft rewrites the filesystem and registry paths. It's all documented somewhere at microsoft.com, good luck searching ... :-(
