    Registry Edit Problem, ripping my hair out here!!

    Hi

    Right can someone tell me what is going off here!!

    im trying to set up a gpo policy to stop startup items starting up upon user login
    im using windows server 2008 r2, im using a preference gpo then the registry items column

    im hoping to delete the registry keys to stop the programs from running

    ive attached a picture of 2 registry edits both are showing on the same system and not a network registry

    regedit.jpg

    the regedit on the left is showing a registry opened from ccleaner -> tools -> startup then right clicked a startup item then open in regedit

    the one on the right is showing me using a command prompt to open regedit from the same node

    now when im setting my gpo to delete items from the left hand regedit. its not delete these regsitry items. and im guessing its seeing what is in the right hand regedit!!!

    What the funk is going of!!??? im ripping my hair out. 2 lots of different regedits on the same computer??? i thought it wasnt possible!!

    I hope you can help me

    Right ive found something but im still stuck!

    im using windows 7 Professional 64bit clients in which i want the gpo to delete the keys

    if i run the 32bit "regedit" or "regedt32" they dont show but if i use the "wow64" or 64bit version of "regedit" or "regedt32" the keys show that i want to delete

    the left hand window was opened up using "regedit" 64bit and the right window was opened up using "regedit" 32bit

    how do i get a gpo to delete a registry key from the 64bit version of "regedit" or "regedt32" rather than the 32bit??

    or does anyone know of a script that will delete these keys so i can stick it in the start up scripts of my GPO
    baring in mind that the keys i want to delete exist in regedit 64bit version

    32-bit applications add keys under...

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
    64-bit applications add keys under...

    Code:
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run]
