Use DeleteValue. From Delphi Help:
Erases a data value that is associated with the current key.

function DeleteValue(const Name: string): Boolean;

Description

Call DeleteValue to remove a specific data value associated with the current key. Name is string containing the name of the value to delete. Keys can contain multiple data values, and every value associated with a key has a unique name.
DeleteValue returns True if the deletion is successful, False if the deletion fails.

Thanx, the problem was that the helpfile to Delphi 2, desktop, does not say a word about registry.
