Windows 7: how to delete unwanted photo tags

how to delete unwanted photo tags

When I type the first letter of a tag for a photo tags beginning with that same letter will pop up. In Vista I could remove unwanted tags with regedit and drill down to the tags under windows photo gallery. Can someone tell me where these tags are in Windows 7 Ultimate 64? I am not using Windows Live.
Thank You

It seems the tags come from the Windows Search Index. That would mean you must delete the tags manually. If the unused tags don't get removed automatically in a few days, you may try rebuilding the Search index.
