VBScript to find a user profile within the registry and delete some keys

I am trying to figure out how to create a VB script that does the following..

1. Find the USERNAME of the current logged in user.
2. Takes that value and searches within HKEY_USERS for the profile that contains that username under Volatile Environment under the USERNAME key.
3. When it successfully finds a match, it then searches within that registry profile and deletes the following:

HKEY_USERS\%USERPROFILE%\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Ext\
      Delete CLSID

HKEY_USERS\%USERPROFILE%\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Settings\
      Delete {0A9CDB52-EBDF-4210-9C6A-B90C2FD410AB}

HKEY_USERS\%USERPROFILE%\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Stats
      Delete {0A9CDB52-EBDF-4210-9C6A-B90C2FD410AB}

Could anyone take a crack at this? This is much too advanced for me to figure out...

Thank you.

Hi, instead of finding the volatile environment username, I have determined the account SID that would exist under HKEY_USERS, and used that.

I have commented out the objShell.RegDelete line in this code so you can see what it would delete.

Regards,

Rob.

Set objNetwork = CreateObject("WScript.Network")
Set objShell = CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\cimv2")
Set objAccount = objWMIService.Get("Win32_UserAccount.Name='" & objNetwork.UserName & "',Domain='" & objNetwork.UserDomain & "'")
strRegRoot = "HKEY_USERS\" & objAccount.SID & "\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\"
arrValuesToDelete = Array("Policies\Ext\CLSID", "Ext\Settings\{0A9CDB52-EBDF-4210-9C6A-B90C2FD410AB}", "Ext\Stats\{0A9CDB52-EBDF-4210-9C6A-B90C2FD410AB}")
For Each strValue In arrValuesToDelete
	strFullValue = strRegRoot & strValue
	WScript.Echo "Deleting " & strFullValue
	On Error Resume Next
	'objShell.RegDelete strFullValue
	Err.Clear
	On Error GoTo 0
Next
