Use Revo(using forced uninstall) or Ccleaner to remove the keys

Basically, if you don't want to use Revo and for some reason want to do it manually, then it might be that you have to take ownership of the registry keys first and only then be able to make changes to them or delete them. Running registry editor as administrator does not change individual key ownership, just gives you ability to change that (if you are an administrator that is). But I would side with yowanvista and recommend Revo. It's certainly easier and it allows you to undo the changes it makes in case something goes wrong.
