Why does my Windows 10 registry have strange characters ?  Are they dangerous?  Can I delete them?

Hello,

None of these keys are inherently dangerous, but it depends on what installed them. This can happen if you installed a program of Asian origin for example. I'd check the content of each key to be sure (you can export them by right clicking the key name and then selecting Export and post or attach the content here).
