    >>We're probably helping this guy write a virus here

    You haven't helped me do anything, I didn't ask for registry API function names, I DO know MSDN exists.

    All I asked in the beginning of the threads is
    "how to search through the registry looking for Values/Keys"

    ....Nobody could answer properly or lend a decent helping hand....

    If I was writing a program the deletes stuff in the registry, why would I be asking for help on how to SEARCH the registry for specific instances of a Value/KEY ?????? I would just delete a well know path. hmmmm... that makes sense

    to answer Fordy on what program would do that...

    dude, calm yourself.

    your question was answered by novacain. And there is no need for insults here. Your actions that you are attempting seem fishy, that's all we said.

    If we're wrong, what is the reason you wish to search the entire registry and not the key for your own app?

    If you are using a version of MS Office 2000 (post Office 97) you must un-install over the 'net to free the serial number or you will not be able register after a re-install.

    To clean the reg, have you tried 'regclean'?

    Again, if you can't write a function that searches thru a file looking for matches to a simple string, IMHO you should not be playing with the registry.

    What is it EXACTLY you are searching the reg for?

    To spell it out further, use RegEnumKeyEx() to search (increment dwIndex) while it returns a ERROR_SUCCESS, match to string, process.
