    how to delete a registry entry that won't

    Does anyone know how to? I installed a program that I do not want and there are entries in registry that refuse to delete.

    When you try to delete it says sorry can't delete ? or does the reg entry just go back in ?

    System Restore always works and if it doesn't there's always your favorite [........] but I won't say that LK favorite word



    Format.....sorry couldn't help myself

    I just reformatted last week or so! This does not seem to be affecting anything it's just annoying the fact that I know it's there and it won't go away. I'll try safe mode.


    *edit - safe mode does not make any difference

    Is is better than JV16? It seems to be ignoring those entries.

    *edit - actually JV16 registry finder seems to work.

    *edit again - only got one of them - there are several more.

    This was the app (though it was version 6.0) - http://www.sidefx.com/news/houdini_61/index.html
    So you still can't delete the reg entry ?

    I will install that software on my test rig and let you know how to get rid of it....if possible

    FastGame vs Houdini....round one

    [edit]= WoW that thing is 59mb...I thought it was 5mb, going to be awhile on my dialup

    How about Dr. Delete,works for me on any stubborn file.
    The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Look under Side Effects Software in the registry and delete that first.Then delete the Houdini entry.Might work.
