Deleting a key from a dynamic location in Registry (MUIcache)

Recommended Posts

elektrongr

Compiling an auto it to run in multiple computers.

I want to delete a key inside

"HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-2000478354-861567501-1417001333-1003\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ComDlg32\OpenSaveMRU\exe"

and the keyname is "b" , data "D:\test.exe"

whereas "S-1-5-21-2000478354-861567501-1417001333-1003" is different every computer.

How can i bypass , using a wildcard this string ?

Thank you very much

Hi,

Here you go :

Global $iKeyIndex = 1, $sKeyName = ""

While 1
$sKeyName = RegEnumKey("HKEY_USERS", $iKeyIndex)
If $sKeyName = "" Then ExitLoop

If StringInStr($sKeyName, "S-1-5-21-") Then
RegDelete("HKEY_USERS" & $sKeyName & "SoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionExplorerComDlg32OpenSaveMRUexe", "b")
ExitLoop
EndIf

$iKeyIndex += 1
WEnd

Br, FireFox.

Do the same thing, except you need to use the function RegEnumVal
