Removing Registry is just not working

Long story short, We ran the intel vulnerability detection tool command line version and it creates a registry key. I'm using custom inventory to pick up the registry key which all works fine. Now I'm trying to delete the key so I can re-run the detection tool again to see who ran the fix. 

Here is the location of the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\Setup and Configuration Software\INTEL-SA-00086 Discovery Tool

If I run this in command prompt it works fine
reg delete "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Intel\Setup and Configuration Software\INTEL-SA-00086 Discovery Tool\System Status" /v "System Risk" /f

but when I run it as a batch file via script it just doesn't work. I ran it as a logged in user as well still no good. 

How can run this thing?

  • You can try with /reg:64 added at the end of your's command as some of the distribution methods are started as 32bit process and registry operations are redirected to the WOW6432Node. - rad33k 3 years ago
  • In our environment we have successfully used the /reg:64 added at the end to remove registry keys. If you make a script and use Online Shell script with the following:
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Intel\Setup and Configuration Software\INTEL-SA-00086 Discovery Tool\System Status" /v "System Risk" /f /reg:64

    It should work run as local system - Bethski 3 years ago
