Partial cleaning of the registry key

Post by Harry » Wed May 06, 2020 3:20 pm

There is a registry key containing several subkeys. I need to remove only those that have a name in the form of a GUID, that is, {XXXXXXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXX-XXXXXXXXXXXX}. These keys are created constantly and therefore always with different names.
The question is, is it possible in the wipe list to set the cleaning only those subkeys whose names begin with '{' and end with '}'? To prevent the removal of other subkeys.

- click Advanced view
- click the edit button to the right of Subkeys to clean
- click Add Custom Subkey Name
- in the field Subkey name enter { and select begins with
