JSI Tip 7604. When you view the My Computer Properties dialog, your CPU description is not correct?

When you right-click My Computer, and press Properties, the description of your CPU, on the General tab, may have missing or obscured characters.

This is an appearance problem only, caused by a size restriction in the ProcessorNameString Value Name, at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\HARDWARE\DESCRIPTION\System\CentralProcessor\0, and has no effect upon the operation of your computer.
