Unable to delete key/string from registry
Here is a problem that I have been struggling with all evening and I need some help please.
I deleted Zone Alarm Extreme Security using Revo Uninstaller, I managed to get rid of everything bar a folder containing 1 dll file (in Program Files (64) and its registry settings.
CCleaner and Revo cannot remove them, I have tried manually but I get a big folder saying I need permission from SYSTEM.
I know a little about the registry but the rest is out of my comfort zone. Are there any brave souls prepared to tell me how I get rid of the final piece of Zone Alarm crap from my system?
I hope this all made sense, its been a long day and I have a doozy of a headache incoming.
In advance I thank you,

Your issue may be due to needing permission from SYSTEM.
Can you change the owner to your Admin account, and then delete it?
Take a look at this tutorial by Brink and see if it helps.
Take Ownership of file
I will David and many thanks for this
