    I have a few registry keys that I am unable to delete. Have tried deleting from command prompt, regedit, safe mode, changing permissions, changing ownership, exporting the full registry, making the changes, then importing the full registry, everything but always get the "Error deleting key" message. Any way to force delete a registry key?

    You probably can't delete those registry keys cause you deleted the main keys already. This can happen when you use some of the registry editors or you use to many at once or to many products for anti-virus or shitty ones after some malware might attacked you or you deleted manualy something that you don't understand. You could try a program like regseeker, it is free.

    Dam Reg keys are a pain . Regseeker is good and most "All in one " programs seem to have them now . I try so many programs weekly that I get a lot of clutter .
    You seem to know computers (if you can edit the registry you have my vote).

    What is the program name of the key your trying to trash ?

    Regleaner is anouther to try .

    Not software, just some junk keys. They are in the HKLM\SYTEM\WPA folder. Tried the two tools mentioned above. but no luck.
