    search the entire registry and delete a string programmatically whereever it occurs


    I need to search the entire registry and delete a string programmatically whereever it occurs. I am new at this. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    I assume you mean the Windows registry? Take a look at the docs for the _winreg module. I haven't worked with it, but it's fairly low-level.
