How do I delete a hidden registry entry ?
My boot drive got infected by a rootkit. The only solution was to buy a new
drive and do a fresh install of Vista. I now have the old drive mounted and
I would like to remove the hidden registry entries in the old registry. Is
there a program to do this ? I'd prefer VB source so I can see how the trick
is done, and all I'm capable of programming in is VB, but if there is a
standalone .exe that would be fine.

Note: It is not my running O/S that has the hidden keys, but a data disk.

Any clue on how to reconstruct the MBR would be appreciated too.
