Hi everyone,
I'd like to know if it's possible, with a Windows Form, read the registry keys of my PC and show their values.

And, if it's possible, edit & delete the keys specifying the name from a form.

Thanks in advance

From MSDN, If you just type registry in the help you will find all you need

Imports Microsoft.Win32
Dim regVersion As RegistryKey
Dim keyValue As String
keyValue = "Software\\Microsoft\\TestApp\\1.0"
regVersion = Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey(keyValue, False)
Dim intVersion As Integer = 0
If (Not regVersion Is Nothing) Then
    intVersion = regVersion.GetValue("Version", 0)
    regVersion.Close()
End If
The following example reads, increments, and then writes a DWORD value to HKEY_CURRENT_USER:
Imports Microsoft.Win32
Dim regVersion As RegistryKey
regVersion =
Registry.CurrentUser.OpenSubKey("SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\TestApp\\1.0", True)
If regVersion Is Nothing Then
    ' Key doesn't exist; create it.
    regVersion =
Registry.CurrentUser.CreateSubKey("SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\TestApp\\1.0")
End If

Dim intVersion As Integer = 0
If (Not regVersion Is Nothing) Then
    intVersion = regVersion.GetValue("Version", 0)
    intVersion = intVersion + 1
    regVersion.SetValue("Version", intVersion)
    regVersion.Close()
End If
