    I scanned my system with rootkitrevealer and it found several entries plus alot of files in google chrome related directories. After i removed some entries with RegDelNull and some manually rootkitrevealer no longer showed those files with chrome related directories. There were still some entries left which i couldnt delete because it says "unable to delete all specififed values" even though i set permissions to full permission. Every time i scan with AVG's anti-rootkit it finds a file in C/windows/system/drivers/xxxxxxxx.SYS even though i delete it every time, its back with another name.
    How can i delete registry entries which say "unable to delete all specified values" ?
