Try system restore first. That'll get rid of any bad reg entries.

DO NOT do this! Many system files are changed, modifed and created everytime the computer is turned on.

Ouch, so maybe I give out bad advice (wouldn't be the first time). It worked for me when trying to root out a virus once but I was actually a bit careful with it (although, now that makes me think that might be where my Rio software went...hmmm....).
