Deleting registries

Hello,

Anyone can show me a code how to delete this registry :

   \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MyCompany\MyApplication\

Below ...\MyApplications\ there are some more keys and "folders" .

So after the deletion, the registry should be like this :

   \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MyCompany\

Thanks,

use Registry

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
var
  Reg: TRegistry;
begin
  Reg:=TRegistry.Create;
  try
      Reg.RootKey:=HKEY_CURRENT_USER; // Section to look for within the registry
      if not Reg.OpenKey('Software\MyCompany\MyApplication',False) then
        ShowMessage('Error opening key')
      else
        Reg.DeleteKey('Software\MyCompany\MyApplication\');
  finally
    Reg.Free;
  end;

Reg:=TRegistry.Create;
  try
      Reg.RootKey:=HKEY_CURRENT_USER;
      if not Reg.OpenKey('\Software\MyCompany\MyApplication',False) then
        ShowMessage('Error opening key')
