Hello Reader,
          Tonight we continued our journey into the shimcache and amcache. Here is what we learned:

  • The extracted executable file from the command line that was not executed was still not present in the shimcache
  • Simply viewing the directory in the GUI that the extracted but not executed executable was in was enough to get it added to the shimcache
  • No new entries from the downloads directories were present in the Amcache
Tomorrow night we will see if the Amcache needed even more time, suggesting its a schedule task
