Oh my god did you know the Windows registry has a folder for icon overlays, like the little checkmarks on OneDrive and Dropbox files?

Guess what. Windows only loads the first like 13 of the registered overlays *in alphabetical order* which has programs fight over the top spots by prepending spaces and whatnot on their registry keys. What a great system...

    One of them is in
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Microsoft/Windows

    Another one is in .../Software/Microsoft/Office/ClickToRun/REGISTRY/MACHINE/A_FUCKING_COPY_OF_THE_SOFTWARE_FOLDER???/Microsoft/Windows
