''If you need to wipe (not just delete) registry keys, I only know of one way to do it: Have autoexec.bat wipe your entire system.dat & user.dat files on start-up, and replace them from known clean backups. (Remember to update the backups when you install or remove applications!)'' - Steve K
Enter RegBack1 and RegBack2, ''two sets of batch files, one with the file-wiper Scorch.com (fast) and another set with Eraserd.exe (slower...but more efficient) both of which will back up your registry to a folder;...''
''...and then upon a reboot of the computer, they run DOS commands from the Autoexec.bat at startup to erase the contents of your static swap-file, wipe the old registry files, and restore a clean registry to the system from previously sanitised files in their registry backup folder. They clean up your system before Windows even loads.''
''This gets rid of extraneous reg keys from temporary software installations, nullif[ie]s pesky run commands from trojans and virii, and eliminate[s] web-surfing tracks and all other information relating to your usage of the computer; everything that was logged into the registry since the last time the files [were] run.''
''In addition, Regback2 will destroy all the cookies, history lists and 'index.dat' files in the Windows dir[ectory]; or any other self-replicating files you may find that log your personal usage statistics.'' - The SCD Team
