    I need a little push in the right direction on a good way to do this.

    I Want to have my VB program run through one part of the registry and it the values on the Keys are the same as any filename in one directory then I would like the value deleted.

    How could I do this with out a huge headacke?

    Ok let me understand this.
    You got a set of keys under a particular Registry hive. Lets say HKEY_CURRENT_USER?

    so the set would be HKEY_CURRENT_USER\My App\My Key1
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\My App\My Key2
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\My App\My Key3 ...

    Correct? Now u want to scan thru the VALUES associated with these keys,
    Compare them with a set of file names.
    And based on a result, you want to delete the VALUES? or do u want to delete the KEYS themselves?

    Tell me that n i'll help u out with a solution.

    Cheers,
    Gaurav
