    Hi there
    I am trying to clean up some registry keys either locally or remotely with the following.
    Remove-Item -Path HKLM:\Software\microsoft\XYZ

    It does not work for me, I have tried on several machines. I also tried -Recurse and -Force.
    But no change.
    If I manually navigate through the registry I can delete the key. Also works if I use reg delete In a batch file.
    Any ideas. I am new to powershell.

    PS4
    Thanks

    Did you run the ISE as administrator?
