Error deleting malicious regestry entry " error while deleting key"

I recently removed trojans from SBS 2003 computer. The trojan installed itself as a service called boot driver. While I was successful removing the trojan I'm unable to delete the service entry in the registry. I took ownership and have full permissions over the reg key but still get an error trying to delete the key " error while deleting key" Any ideas
