Create a reg file: Copy the contents of the file to text file and save as "remover.reg" in the C:\ root directory.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


Now, create a batch file called clear.bat. The contents of the file would be:
"regedit.exe /s c:\remover.reg" (without quotes)

Now, goto start|run|gpedit.msc
>Windows Settings>SCripts>ShutdownScript> browse and locate the clear.bat file

Now, at every shutdown the above mentioned key should be deleted.
