Warning If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Microsoft cannot guarantee that you can solve problems that result from using Registry Editor incorrectly. Use Registry Editor at your own risk.

To remove the Windows registry keys that are associated with the migration DLL files, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open box, type regedit, and then click OK.
Expand the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Migration\100

NOTE: If this key is not present, continue to step 8.
On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.
In the File name box, type migration 100, and then click Save.
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
On the Confirm Key Delete message that appears, click Yes.
Expand the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Migration DLLs

On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.
In the File name box, type migration dlls, and then click Save.
In the right pane of the Registry Editor window, right-click the entry that has the following value:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\W2K"

On the shortcut menu that appears, click Delete.
On the Confirm Value Delete message that appears, click Yes.
Expand the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\Migration\650

Note If this key is not present, go to step 19.
On the Registry menu, click Export Registry File.
In the File name text box, type migration 650, and then click Save.
On the Edit menu, click Delete.
When the "Confirm Key Delete" message appears, click Yes.
Quit Registry Editor.
