Save settings in registry

Hi

  Could someone advice me on how I could save settings to the registry.
Right now it saves under HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> VB and VBA Program Settings. But I want it to be under HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Test1 -> Test2.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanx
