VBS and Registry keys

Hello everyone,

I have a small issue that I need a little help with. I have a logon script that I use on the network, I have added the ability to delete certain registry keys to it...but it deletes it based on the value (i.e. name). What I want to do is delete it based on the data, for instance we have a user with a virus that makes a key in the key HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce with a value of "wlan driver" and data being serviced.exe. I can delete it based on "wlan driver" but I need to get rid of it based on "serviced.exe"

Any help would be very helpful

Following untested code should do it:

set sh = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
If ucase(sh.RegWrite("HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\wlan driver")) = "SERVICED.EXE" then
     sh.RegDelete "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\RunOnce\wlan driver"
end if

That looks great but would there be anyway to incorporate this into my current code:

Private Sub RegClean

  On Error Resume Next

  Dim strRegKey              
  Dim strSubKey        
  Dim strKey              
  Dim strRegVal        
  strRegKey1 = "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion"
  strRegKey2 = "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion"
  strRegKey3 = "HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion"
  strSubKey1 = "Run"
  strSubKey2 = "RunOnce"
  strSubKey3 = "RunServices"
  strRegVal1 = "wlan driver"
  strRegVal2 = "MSMGR"
  strRegVal3 = "Windows network driver"
  strKey1 = (strRegKey3 & "\" & strSubKey2 & "\" & strRegVal1)
  strKey2 = (strRegKey3 & "\" & strSubKey2 & "\" & strRegVal2)
  strKey3 = (strRegKey3 & "\" & strSubKey2 & "\" & strRegVal3)
  objWshShell.RegDelete (strKey1)
  objWshShell.RegDelete (strKey2)
  objWshShell.RegDelete (strKey3)
End Sub
