As per Spenner, I was successful in writing to the Registry through my visual basic program. Now I need to know how to remove what was written using my visual basic program. Here is what was written:SetKeyValue "SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices", _
                    "MyProgexe", "C:\it\Myprogexe\MyProg.exe", REG_SZ
Thank You in Advance...

For instance:
hKey might be: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, and lpSubKey might be: "SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Print\Printers"

Cymbolic Sir: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunServices"MyProgexe", "C:\it\Myprogexe\MyProg.exe", REG_SZ is where my initial placement is. Could you send me an example of removing this information from the registry step by step for the complete idiot child ? (This is how I placed the information in there in the first place)Your humble student Thanks You
