    Hi

    I have posted this eleswhere, but no one was able to help.

    Can anyone tell me how to get rid of the following under:

    ( Hkey_Current User > Software>Zone Labs > (sub dirs) Zone Alarm > plugin > obj > 00000002 > &. )

    When I click Zone Labs, I get a message..
    " Error while deleting key"

    Canonot delete plugin
    " Error Deleting Key. Cannot delete plugin. Error while deleting key "

    Then the next sub folder down I get

    " Error opening key. Cannot delete obj. Error while deleting key "

    Everything else has been deleted, but I just can't delete the above.

    I want to do it so as I have an absolute clean reinstall.

    I have tried in Safe Mode, changing permissions, but still have not been able to remove.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Grandpaj

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for your help.
    I had actually uninstalled via a similar link, as the Zone Alarm uninstaller didn't want to work.

    I don't know anything about DOS commands, so am a little reluctant to try. But many thanks anyway.

    I'll box on.

    Any other thoughts would be appreciate,

    Many thanks

    Hi Grandpaj,

    Might give this a try. Download the following "Trialware" program & install. When you open it, do a search for (Exact name) of what you are trying to delete. It will find the registry keys & you can delete same by highlighting & clicking on delete in the right menu. It is called "Registry Crawler".

    Hoipe it helps.:)

    Regards,
