with samples after analyzing the samples in a Windows OS analysis environment.

A mutex (mutual exclusion object) allows
programs to share the same resource, though the resource cannot
be used by more than one program simultaneously. If the sample generates
other program threads when executed in the analysis environment,
the mutex created when the programs start is listed along with the
Windows Registry settings and options that
showed activity when the sample was executed in the analysis environment.
Artifacts listed for each registry activity include the parent process
that was active, the registry method used by the parent process
(Action), and the parameters column lists the registry key that
was set, modified, or deleted.
