Changing or removing entries through Regedit bypasses the edit function of many of the programs themselves. The registry is where these programs store Preferences and Options that would be set through the program's menu and controls how the program will work--Or not work.

And, as already stated, changes may not show up right away. Or they may show up sooner than you think when the system won't boot or crashes when you try to run a program.
