While trying to remove "a-search.biz" using registrar lite, I followed the self help instruction. I am now trying to delete LEGACY_PNPSVC in the registry, but I keep getting an ACCESS DENIED message. I tried setting the right permissions, but to no avail. What am I doing wrong - help is needed!
I right clicked the key, clicked "properties", added myself as a user, gave myself full permissions, took ownership of the key, and pressed delete - kaboom! ACCESS DENIED, again and again. Help!

Reboot your computer and see if the key is still present.
