Just a heads up, I uninstalled Sharks video codecs as I don't need them anymore. But when running CCleaner registry cleaner, I had 3 invalid keys come up. But CCleaner couldn't remove them. I opened the location up in regedit as admin but got the dreaded "An error occurred while trying to delete the key" message.

spent some time scouring the internet to try to fix. I assume it is a permissions issue but nothing I tried worked. Then I stumbled across a tool called RegTI. RegTI runs regedit as Trusted Installer. It easily removed the 3 invalid keys and all is well. I found it on the community Microsoft site HEREI

I did a search for RegTI on this forum, but it came up as a blank. So thought I'd share it with you. Maybe you'll find it useful too.
