How to remove this key from Win 7 Registry ?

I am trying to completely remove Acronis True Image Home 2011 from my PC. Have run the Windows uninstaller and also the Acronis "Cleanup" utility. I have a couple keys remaining in the Registry in Control Set...Control Set2...Control Set3, etc.

Attached are the errors in permissions I am receiving trying to delete the remaining references to Acronis:

Thanks...TRinAZ

Hello Tim,

Did you already take ownership (step 3 of Option Two in Method One at link) of the key in the left pane before changing the permissions of it?

Thanks as always...I knew there was another step in permissions and registry entries...just couldn't remember what it was...

I'm assuming it would cause no issue if I delete the entire "ACRONISDEVICES" ( Acronis_reg3.jpg) entry...but what about the ACROVBUS entry ? ( Acronis_reg2.jpg )

Thanks...

As Logicearth posted, you would want to do this in the CurrentControlSet key instead if there since this is the one that is applied.

Since you uninstalled Acronis, it will not hurt anything to delete "ACROVBUS" or "ACRONISDEVICES".
