OK so I needed to add some registry folders in order to make a game work. Now that i don't want the game because it takes space, i want to delete those registry folders but have no idea where they are or and how to delete them.
What damage does registry folders do anyways?

Hi there :)

Can you find the instructions you used to modify the registry in the first place?

Leaving that kind of stuff in the registry does nothing to slow your computer down and can be left there. Uninstalling your game from Start Button > Control Panel > Programs and Features will remove the game from your system.

You should not be messing with the registry if you don't know what you're doing. Like I said before, you can leave the "folders" which are actually called keys or values there without any detrimental effects to your system.

If you deleted the games files, then don't worry about the registry and leave that there.
