Note that Registry editing is NOT nearly as complicated as most folks
may think! Windows provides "regedit.exe" (click on "Run" in the
start menu and enter "regedit" in the resulting dialog box) which
has a "Find" function which can find every occurrence of a word or
character group in the Registry. "Find" the name (the offending
program) and remove each occurence (usually in "Run" entries or
those associated with file extensions).

Tedious, yes...boring, yes...but not complicated (and useful to
know if one gets hit by a virus...)
