Hi there ! To delete a Registry Key you need to open RegEdit.
Go to start , run and type in regedit and it will take you to where you need to be to delete registry keys .be extra careful however ,your system can crash if you are not careful on which keys you delete .then you will go depending on what your deleting HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE then the appropriate folder .Youll right click on the folder and all of its subkeys and just click delete ,you may however want to click export first save to the desktop so that if soemthing goes wrong you can replace it back how it was.i would also reccomend this link it will basically let you know what you have and what you can delete,and its free. <_<

What and why do you think you need to remove something from the registry? It's very likely you may seriously damage your system and make it unable to start. I really don't recommend you mess with the registry unless you know exactly what you're doing.

Let us help. Let's take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.
