Update your post to include full system hardware specs and OS information.

The first image is from Defragment and Optimize Drives > Optimize Drives - Correct?

Enhet = Unit (Drive ?)
Medietyp = Media type
Senast analserad = Last Analyzed

When you were in the Registry did you make any changes?

It appears that you toggled the presentation format of the drive designation.

What is now being shown in your first image is (are) the Drive Mount GUIDs. (Device ID)

Open Powershell on your computer and run the following cmdlet

Get-WMIObject win32_volume | Format-List -property Label,DriveLetter,DeviceID,SystemVolume

You should be able copy the single line above and then paste it at the PS> prompt.

Example from my PC

============

PS C:\Users\YourUserNameshownhere> Get-WMIObject win32_volume | Format-List -property Label,DriveLetter,DeviceID,SystemVolume


Label : Dell Data
DriveLetter : D:
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{b0abad29-ff43-4f64-991d-8e51c3441a5d}\
SystemVolume : False

Label : OS
DriveLetter : C:
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{76f992e1-44d2-4158-9e88-b13b06255fb1}\
SystemVolume : False

Label : WINRETOOLS
DriveLetter :
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{7df7d5fa-2339-464a-a716-62744a24edf6}\
SystemVolume : False

Label : Image
DriveLetter :
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{277d594d-3b46-46a2-8ac0-d187dbf4a71a}\
SystemVolume : False

Label : DELLSUPPORT
DriveLetter :
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{0851a1c8-c125-419c-8d85-5af28ec01e96}\
SystemVolume : False

Label : Dynex_Drive
DriveLetter : X:
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{9e1fe2bc-e8a4-4983-b299-c4fbccdda307}\
SystemVolume : False

Label : ESP
DriveLetter :
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{0aa481a3-7249-489c-b632-24cf5e6eda0d}\
SystemVolume : True

Label :
DriveLetter : E:
DeviceID : \\?\Volume{2aeda70a-c613-11e8-90e7-806e6f6e6963}\
SystemVolume : True

=========================

If the Device IDs match then we know that, somehow, the name format in your window was changed.

Once that is verified then the focus will be to undo that change. And hopefully without any registry edits.

Did you back up the Registry before going into Regedit?

You are correct about the first picture
Enhet = Is the drives
And the other ones are correct.
I didn’t do anything in regedit i just opend it because when i was looking for an answer to this but I couldn’t find a answer. So yeah didn’t do anything in the regestry. The only thing i have done in there recently is i removed a thing relatad to Pulseway because i f:ed up the installation at first and then I couldn’t install it again so i looked up solutions and removing that didn’t work but i did another thing and that worked. I will explain more later.

Pulseway for remote management and monitoring - correct?

Not familiar with it (full disclosure) but I would not be surprised if that software (if indeed Pulseway) was a contributing factor.

Was Pulseway a full version or demo version?
