An easy way of deleting a registrykey is discribed here: http://www.jsiinc.com/SUBA/TIP0100/RH0170.HTM

Jou could also write a vbs. (and call it from batch/logon)
'VBScript Example
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

WshShell.RegDelete "HKLM\Test\Value" 'Delete value "Value"
WshShell.RegDelete "HKCU\Test\Subkey\" 'Delete key "Subkey"

A better way would be to download somethinge like addaware (http://www.lavasoftusa.com/).

Best way for you in the future is to install something like just-reboot...

Now you can totally mess up a system without EVER having to worry about it again. Simply pull the plug and switch back on and et voila... Everything is exactly like it was the day you installed and configured it...

There are also softwaresolutions for this.

Can you tell us a bit more about your configuration?
What operating systems are you using?
Is it setup as a domain or workgroup?
What programs are installed on the machines? AV? Firewall?
Are your clients given profiles if in a domain?

Thanks
Dave

What worm/virus was it that you were infected with?  Many of the big ones have stand alone cleaning utilites that will go out and take care of the whole infection (registry and all), and they usually fit on a floppy, so you could go around to all 20 and run it on all of them at the same time.

Let us know,

Jared
