Have you tried deleting the sub keys one at a time starting at the bottom one, then delete the main "Bohemia Interactive Studio" key?

Is this the beta Arma 2?
Is it the Steam version?

I searched "uninstall Arma 2 OA" at BIS forum and there are a lot of considerations. but it seems as though you can manually remove BIS. I'm not familiar with BIS or Arma 2, so I can't gve you exact instructions.

It might be worth a try to reinstall and then uninstall.

I'm not talking about the game...I'm talking about the Key...nothing to do with the game. This is a non-steam CD I bought from amazon.

Applications create Registry keys when installed. From your screen shot I gathered that the key was related to the game.

Ok, non-steam from Amazon. That eliminates about half or the posts over at the BIS forums. Have you looked through some of the posts on the link I provided?

The methods everyone has given here should work. Esepcially post# 10 - one thing that might not have carried forward is:
When you type regedit in the start menu search, you have to right click the result and select run as administrator

The link worked for me, that's how I got the above URL. If clciking on the URL doesn't work, copy the entires line and paste it into the address bar of your browser.

Well, after uninstall and install I can only play Arma II, not OA. Keys still messed up.

What is the top level key?
in an elevated command prompt
type:
reg query /s "top level key" > %userprofile%\downloads\ProblemKey.txt
exit command prompt and if the txt file isn't too big, post it on the thread
otherwise, place it in a zip file as an attachment

If I fat fingered the example and the text file doesn't exit or is empty, try it again, this time copying the output off the command prompt window
