    Yes, all and even the one with the 3. However, it is actually best to delete the whole Key address that is in the screen to the left. It should be highlighted but sometimes hard to see depending on your monitor settings.

    Yep, you got it. But only do this to keys where it contains only references to what you are searching for like the one you found. If other references are contained, only delete the sub keys containing the search string. Clear as mud?

    Oh, and don't forget to reboot when all done. Good luck!

    I didn't see that in your post #20. Are you in another key?

    Ok, yea delete it. To be sure you found everything, start at top on left screen again then F3 through until it pops up nothing found. Close out of regedit. Then reboot.

    Yep, and remember, you can always import everything back in if something weird shows up after reboot. But I think you are going to be happy.

Upgrade to 8.1 process in General Support
I upgraded to Windows 8.1 through the Windows updates. Does it download somewhere on my computer so I can save the file if i need to reinstall later? I looked and can't find it. If I ever need to reinstall Windows would I install Version 8.0 from the disc I purchased and then install updates?
so I was downloading the updates to windows 8.1, but it wasn't going anywhere so I rebooted. Then on reboot, I try again and it's not showing up on the store. I hit the back button a few times and saw the link again, but it says it's already installed. Now I am pretty sure it didn't get...
