Another Registry Question

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...

Declare Function RegDeleteKey& Lib "advapi32.dll" Alias "RegDeleteKeyA" (ByVal _
hKey As Long, ByVal lpSubKey As String)

hKey is handle of open key or one of the standard key names
lpSubKey is the name of the subkey to delete

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
