Just a hint from a past discussion--perhaps this will help you. I do not have Vista (hope I never do). Thanks!

In Win 3.1 8.3 format used by UFT, Win XP truncates the first four instances of "Microsoft" (or any other similar string)as:
Micros~1
Micros~2
Micros~3
Micros~4

Then, after more than four instances, it switches to the first two letters "MI" + four seemingly random numbers followed by a tilde.
