I'm looking for some assistance in a vb script I'm writing.

I'd a script that can locate all instances of a binary value named 'New Signature'

These binary values are be located within unknown sub keys under key 'HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Windows Messaging Subsystem'.

I need the code to recursively search through every sub keys and replace when it finds a binary value named 'New signature' it will replace its value with ''hex:28,00,6e,00,6f,00,6e,00,65,00,29,00,00,00"

thanks in advance!
