Deleting Registry Keys

Hi guys hope you are well and can help.
Guys, I have the following requirement and would love to create a vbscript to do this.

1) Delete the following registry keys (if they exist).
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\McAfee\HIP
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\EnterceptAgent
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FireHook
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\firelm01
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FirePM
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\FireTDI

2) Delete the following folder
C:\Program Files\McAfee\Host Intrusion Prevention

3) Delete the following files
C:\Windows\System32\FireCL.dll
C:\Windows\System32\FireCNL.dll
C:\Windows\System32\FireCore.dll
C:\Windows\System32\FireEpo.dll
C:\Windows\System32\FireNHC.dll
C:\Windows\System32\FireSCV.dll

The end result would be something like the below as a hta file:

--------------------------------------------- delreg.hta

Please enter a computer name: _______________

<Run>

On running, the outcome of each step would be seen eg.

Running Step 1).......... completed.
Running Step 2).......... completed.
Running Step 3).......... completed.

Script finished.

Any help greatly appreciated.

HIi astroviper,
Thanks so much for your help.
astro,
Does your script cater for registry keys that do not exist, or if the folder on disk does not exist?

The "On Error Resume Next" part at the top means that it will fail silently if the key or the folder/file doesn't exist. It was easier for me at the time... If you need it I could try putting in some feedback as to whether or not the operations were successful.

Error checking isn't normally something I both with, other than letting the script host handling it. I just remembered there are some objects that a HTA can't access but a dedicated vbscript file can. I'm not sure if that was causing a problem but to be sure, here's a vbscript that outputs a html file instead. Also has some basic error checking.

On Error Resume Next
strComputer = InputBox("Enter computer:" & VbCrLf & ". for localhost")
strFile = strComputer & "Report.html"
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
 
strOutput = "<html><head><title>" & strComputer & "'s Results</title></head><body>"
