Deleting Registry entries via a Batch file with Wild Cards?
We have reason to manually remove office fromwork PCs when patches won't
install. The KB article below has the steps for that but take forever to do.

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/928218

Is there a way to make a batch file that can remove the keys and use the
wildcards as listed without specifying each key individually? I can handle
deleting the folders but don't know how to do registry keys via a wild card
character or if it's even possible.

Thanks.

No, there are no wildcard facilities for the usual registry editing
programs. This is just as well - having wildcards would be a recipe for
disaster.

About removing MS Office efficiently from some PCs - best to ask the experts
in one of the many MS Office newsgroups. You are currently posting in a
Windows newsgroup.
