Default Registry Key

Is there a way to delete a registry key? I am trying to delete the key because I no longer use the application associated with it but it won't allow me to. I am getting a message of Can not open Mozilla Firefox: Error while openong key. I appreciate any help.

I used one called easy cleaner. Are you familiar with it?

I'm not sure what to do after I scanned my registry. I assume I should delete every thing it finds but I want to confirm it with someone who uses the product.

That's what I would do as well. As most registry cleaners do not find all the associations most times.

I do that as well but it wouldn't let me delete it. The cleaner took care of it.
