VBS to search value and return key where that value is present

Hi ;
I am in great need of VBS which will search registry HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall for the value DisplayName=Nachiket. If found then return or delete the key where this value is present. Can anybody help ?

Get the Registry class file from JSWare http://www.jsware.net

It has a selection of enumeration functions like EnumKeys and EnumValues which you can use. They populate Dictionary objects which you can then test for content.

BTW, would it not be easier to search for the ProductCode? Theapplication's ProductCodes are what form the GUIDs you see beneath the 'Uninstall' branch.

Product Code is not confirmed. The script should work for any product code where DisplayName=Nachiket
