What's the purpose? Are you trying to hide all traces of any USB devices you may have connected?

I trust you are familiar with the registry, otherwise you could cause damage requiring a system reload.

If you are going to start working in the registry, first download ERUNT (feee) which can save your registry before you start. See this website:

If things go wrong it can then restore the previous registry unchanged. This is better than using the export & import facility in the registry because that only "merges" the saved registry back with whatever has already been altered.

Note that I do not agree with the suggestion on the ERUNT website (FAQ's) that you should turn off System Restore. Although often restoring a previously saved good registry can fix a problem more quickly and reliably than System Restore, it is NOT a replacement. They are two quite different facilities.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Typing in all capital letters in a post on the internet is considered to be the same as if you were shouting, and very rude !

What problems are you having that make you think you need to delete USB related entries in the registry ?
