Hello Meagan,

To use regedit in Windows 7, here is a procedure that will guide you:

  • On your computer, click on the Start button, and then type regedit in the search box and then press Enter. The Registry Editor program will open.

  • After that, using the > icon, you will need to go through the registry key branches till you find the subkey that you want to delete.

  • Make sure you backup the registry you are about to delete.

  • In case you are deleting the registry subkey, you will need to ensure that it's selected on the left, but if you are deleting a specific registry value, ensure that it is selected on the right.

  • With the subkey or value selected, you will need to select Edit and then Delete from the Registry Editor menu.

  • In  case you are deleting an entire subkey on the left, you will need to Confirm Key Delete message:

    Are you sure you want to permanently delete this key and all of its subkeys?

    But if you are deleting one or more individual values on the right, you will need to Confirm Value Delete message:

    Deleting certain registry values could cause system instability. Are you sure you want to permanently delete this value?

  • After that click on the Yes button to remove the key or value.

  •  

    And then close Registry Editor and restart your computer.

Regards,

Carl

Hi Meagan,

You may want to try the following steps below to manually delete your unwanted registry keys:

Note: Before you continue, backup your data just in case you edit your registry incorrectly.

1. Click Start>Run.

2. Type regedit on the command window and then click OK to open your Registry Editor window.

3. Right-click the registry key on the left pane and then click Delete. Click Yes on the confirmation box that will appear.

4. Repeat the same process that you want to delete from your registry key list.

5. Close the registry key window.

If you want to clean your registry for broken keys and unwanted registry keys, you can use registry cleaner tool like Ccleaner, Little Registry Cleaner, Registry Manager which you can download online.
