if are using regedit, right click on the keyset "personalize" and choose permissions.  first take ownership and then add administrators full control to the set.

  • You could also script that. You could use regini.exe to specify the desired permissions followed by a regdelete. Just be sure to run the script with a user that has sufficient rights to change the registry permissions. The account 'System' should be a good identity to start with.

The HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT key provides a view of the registry that merges the information from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and HKEY_CURRENT_USER.

So to delete this key, try deleting the key in HKLM or HKCU.
