I need a better way to manage registry, like search a term and delete or replace all found values

I need a better way to manage registry, like search a term and delete or replace all found values, from regedit i only can do one by one.
I know that can be very dangerous, but i need a way to automate the deletion of all keys and values contain like "NVIDIA" term.
Thanks Experts

I would strongly recommend making use of PowerShell. PowerShell is a new feature from Microsoft which makes it easier for system administrator to do tasks of this nature.

Please read more about PowerShell on the below URL


Hope this helps.
Assuming you are using WIndows 7 or Windows Server 2008, just type PowerShell in search and you will be able to start PowerShell.

Once on the PowerShell command prompt you can type

PS > cd HKLM:

this will directly take you to registry key under HKLM
then type

PS > ls

to see the listing of registry keys under HKLM
