Hi Saikrishna, Welcome to SF,

If your trying to Remove that application the uninstaller usually would remove it. If not try Revo Uninstaller that should take out almost all entries that a Program create while installing. Or you can do a System Restore

Hope this helps,
Captain

you could also try CCleaner - this should remove defunct or meaningless entries..
- that's if you're happy running a Registry cleaner - some people are still suspicious..

I've always used CCleaner and it hasn't harmed my set-up once in 5 years..
