( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Well, I was able to find those keys with the second script, but the delete part needs some work to catch them. Good thing that isn't the issue I'm trying to solve. ;-)

Here's the fixed version:

use Win32::TieRegistry(Delimiter=>'/'); $| = 1; sub process_hidden { my ($root, $tgt) = @_; print "HIDDEN REGISTRY KEY FOUND:\n$root/$tgt\n\n"; print "Delete or Keep? [D/k] "; $_=<>; chomp; if ( ! /k/i ) { delete $Registry->{$root}->{$tgt}; } } sub check_content { for ( keys %{$Registry->{$root}} ) { &check_content("$root/$_") if exists $Registry->{"$root/$_/"}; &process_hidden($root,$_) if (length($_) > 256 || index($_,"\0") >= 0); } } &check_content("CUser/TEST/");

Also, my regedit had no problem deleting that key ... perhaps that is an old bug? The page you reference is from 1999 ...

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
