  1. Registry help - remove sub key


    I am looking for help with proper syntax in editing a saved .reg file.


    I know that by placing a "-" in front of a key deletes the entire key, but what syntax is used to delete a specific part of a sub key only?
    ...being the ".jpg"="PBrush" part.

    Here is the .reg file:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Paint\Capabilities\FileAssociat ions]

    Can NOT remove ATITool registry key!

    It's low priority to stop ATITool from making undeletable class keys in the reigstry?

    That's about one rung above spyware.

    What bothers me most is that I'm pretty sure you can't protect a registry key by any simple means, something must still be running somewhat that is protecting that key. Even after I manually removed the service. That's what bothers me.

  3. Error Removing Registry Key?

    If it is not causing you any issues i would suggest for you you not alter the Registry.

    Altering the Registry in any form of way may cause your Operating System to stop responding and or functioning.

    ATITool registry key


    During ATITool installation, the following registry key was added to my registry:


    After uninstalling the program, this key remained. I tried to delete it through the registry editor but it returned the following error:

    "Cannot delete {85b5ddd0-e090-4b15-bdf2-a443a3ca0b66}: Error while deleting key."

    I'm running Vista Home Premium 32-bit by the way. I also tried to change permissions for the key and deleting in safe mode, but neither of those worked either.

    Any ideas on how i can remove this key? Any help is appreciated, thanks.
