Unless you are very sure of what you are doing, editing the registry can be hazardous. There are several good spyware programmes (both free and highly recommended here and elsewhere) that will allow registry changes to be made, but also creates a back up of the original, in case something untoward happens after the changes are made.
Ad-awareSE and Spybot Search and Destroy are both good applications, and are updated on a regular basis.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
