From VB, How do I open a Registry and simultaneously delete a windows key in that. Is there any API or Function which I can use(Like Shell command to Prompt DOS).All the processes should happen in the background without user knowing it.

You can use either API or VB functions to manipulate the Registry.

See the section Managing Application Settings in MSDN-VB.

GetSetting function Retrieves registry settings.
SaveSetting statement Saves or creates registry settings.
GetAllSettings function Returns an array containing multiple registry settings.
DeleteSetting statement Deletes registry settings.
{DeleteSetting(appname, section, key)}


You can also refer to this page "Add and delete keys anywhere in the registry without API" - http://www.planet-source-code.com/vb/scripts/ShowCode.asp?lngWId=1&txtCodeId=4192
