In the bottom right corner of the post there is "Report | Rate post | Post #:". You can click on "Rate Post" there.

Thanks!

How about trying "HKLM" instead of "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE"?

If from a command prompt you type "reg delete /?", it will give you some examples at the bottom of the help.

OK, here is an example of one that I used and it doesn't loop:

reg DELETE HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate /f

Since it's DOS (essentially), it shouldn't be case sensitive. I also did not use quotes but then my path doesn't have white spaces either.

reg DELETE HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate /f

I just took your exact string you listed above, pasted it into notepad and saved it as a bat file. I then created the keys (ABC and ABC100) you listed in the bat file. I then ran the bat file and it deleted the ABC100 key, leaving ABC, and terminated with a message "The operation completed successfully."

Is there something else you are doing that you're not mentioning maybe?

Actually, the key word to look for is "example". I wasn't doing the work for you. ;) And to be more technically correct, it would not "delete the whole registry" but only the "Windows Update" key and everything under it - not that you would use that here though...
