IMPORTANT: This article describes how to create and run an .inf file designed to delete registry entries automatically. Creating an .inf file to delete registry entries is a dangerous process. Do not attempt to do this unless you have made copies of your registry (System.dat and User.dat) files. These files are hidden files in the Windows folder. You should also verify that the .inf file you create works properly in your environment before using it in a production environment. Deleting registry entries incorrectly can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that problems resulting from the incorrect use of this method can be solved. Use this method at your own risk.
