Automating filechecking, best way forward?

Recommended Posts

Ok in one of my scripts i have an array with 500+ items in it which are things im removing from a machine registry.

The problem lies in updating this list as i have to do it by hand

after the tool has been run on a new machine we take a log of the remaining items that were missed in this format


Name : aaevwcko

Type : Registry -> Machine Run

Command Line : C:Documents and SettingsLOUIS YOUNGLocal SettingsApplication Datagwdqplhvptnrkbnashdw.exe

Disabled : No

Product Name :

And so on with multiple items per text file

I have lots of entries i cannot add because windows needs them etc etc

So i basically have to sit there and read every log and compare to the array to make sure it hasnt been added already and if not then check whether it should be added

The specific part i use to search is this

Name : aaevwcko

but only this bit "aaevwcko"

Which is very tedious

What would be the best way to make this process more easy?

Do i create a array of the items i dont need and process it somehow against the logfiles and then make it delete the entries that are not needed

Or the other way and remove what has previously been adde

Or both

Or.. ive no idea

So any suggestions plz
