Do you really want to go messing with the registry? Is the desktop manger causing you some issues?

1 Use Add/Remove buttons to remove BlackBerry® Desktop Manager:

1. Go to Start > Settings > Add/Remove programs.
2. Select BlackBerry Desktop Software.
3. Select Remove.

2 Delete registry entries:

1. Go to Start > Run > type Regedit > Select OK.
2. Delete the Research In Motion folder within HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\.
3. Delete the Research In Motion folder within HKEY_Local_Machine\Software\.
Note: Modifying the computer registry can cause substantial damage to the Microsoft® Windows® operating system. Document and back up the existing registry entries prior to implementing any changes.

3 Delete folders from Windows® Explorer:

1. Open Windows Explorer.
2. Delete the Research In Motion folder within C:\Program Files\..
3. For any version, including Service Pack 4, delete Research In Motion folder within C:\Documents and Settings\<user name>\Application Data\.

Note: If the user is unable to see Application folder, it is probably in a hidden system folder. This can be made visible by selecting Show Hidden Files and Folders option under Windows Explorer.

4 Delete C:\Program Files\Common Files\PUMATECH shared folder.

Note: Any other synchronization software for other personal digital assistants (PDA) using the PUMATECH folder will need to be reinstalled after a successful installation of BlackBerry Desktop Manager.

5 Restart the computer.

So long as you know what you're doing, registry isn't bad to play with, I've actually done many tweeks just editing settings and links within the registry ;). So long as you don't delete or change something you know nothing about, you're gravy
