Use WritePrivateProfileString API.
BOOL WritePrivateProfileString(
  LPCTSTR lpAppName,  // section name
  LPCTSTR lpKeyName,  // key name
  LPCTSTR lpString,   // string to add
  LPCTSTR lpFileName  // initialization file
);
lpString If this parameter is NULL, the key pointed to by the lpKeyName parameter is deleted.
