Find then delete Registry subkey

experts,

ive looked around the posted threads on this and cannot find anything that i can understand/ applies to what i need. Im trying to create a simple batch file that will find a registry subkey under HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings

my company had implemented a new web filter and its loading this proxy.pac registry subkey when a new user logs into a computer. instead of opening cmd runas admin, regedit, search registry for proxy.pac then deleting it i would like to create a batch file to do it for me.

yeah i know its not much but when you have over 100 users and this proxy.pac loads itself back every few days for every user.... you see how this can become frustrating. I would take this up with our main IT HQ but they are useless and have not fixed the issue in two weeks!

If you just want to delete the key, use

Dim WSHShell
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
WSHShell.RegDelete "HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\[mySubKeyName]"
Set WSHShell = Nothing


Put the code above on temp.vbs and run it.
