    1. 0045B9C1 - jl should jump
    2. 0045B9CB - jnz should not jump
  7. Tries to unsuccessfully load dll AXLzZmdD9HtbQccvaUl8.dll
    1. 0045B9D9 - jnz should not jump
    2. 0045B9DE - jnz should not jump

    4. 0045B8C4 - jnz should not jump
    5. Loops for 0x5A73350 times for no reason. Kill the loop by setting jnz to not jump.
  10. sub_45B794 - Step into use_junkdata
    1. VirtualAlloc new memory with the size of 0x65E4

    4. unk_45CCD4 is the Junk data
    5. sub_407074 - Step over Copy_to_new_mem, loads Junk data of size 65E4 into new memory: Delphi move(source, dest);
    6. unk_45CCB4 - loads 0x20 byte string
    7. sub_45B5AC - do_something_interesting( size of junk data, size of 0x20 byte string, pointer to 0x20 byte string, 0x100, 0x0BEE2, pointer to newly copied memory of junk data)

Let’s save sub_45B5AC for the next section.
