VB Script for Registry Modifications

I would like a VB script that would allow me to modify the suggested registry files in this document. http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX325140 ... I can get part of it but I'm not sure how to create a script that will get multiple files with similar names. In any event, I'm interested in a script that will remove the suggested registry files mentioned in the document.

Thanks in advance.

Why not just uninstall using Revo Uninstaller. It was made to make sure registry entries and files don't get left behind.

http://download.cnet.com/Revo-Uninstaller/3000-2096_4-10687648.html

If files do get left behind, like config files and data files, which some don't uninstall as a precaution, a simple

rmdir /s <foldername>

can be executed or placed in a .bat file and executed.

SStory .. I'm familiar with the scripting piece of it .. You could also create a reg file and use something like this [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\KeyName] .. However I'm looking for something a little more sofisticated and would prefer a vb script with a few condition variables ( i.e If key exists then do this etc .. )  

Thanks for the input though.

Free Tool: ZipGrep

ZipGrep is a utility that can list and search zip (.war, .ear, .jar, etc) archives for text patterns, without the need to extract the archive's contents.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way to say thank you for being a part of the community.

No problem. Revo works great and takes care of all of this.

There is also the reg.exe file in system32 folder

REG delete <whatever>

I'd just try deleting it and if it isn't there it won't delete anything.

As for conditionals

You should be able to use IF THEN ELSE END IF in vbs. And the object in my second link should give you access to methods for checking key existence, etc.

Thanks
