wow64 redirection bug in Autoruns 14.05

There's a bad wow64 redirection bug in 14.05, when you run Autoruns.exe (not Autoruns64.exe) on a 64 bit OS.

If you disable an entry(s) in HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, autoruns saves the backup to HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run\AutorunsDisabled - meaning it can't reenable the entry.
Refreshing or restarting autoruns then shows the entry in HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run, which unsurprisingly, is where it restores the entry to, leaving those entries inoperable.
