I need a tool that I can search for a particular product, say Mcafee and it will find all the instances of Mcafee and allow me to delete them at once.

thanks

don't think your going to do it like that. I would

1. use regedit to find all records, Exporting them as I go.
2. merge exported data and add the "-" to the front od the key to remove it. (for every key)
3. Save and run file.

this will import the changes and remove all keys. you can then run this script again and again on any PC
