Tired to launch regedit & browse the tree to delete those key ?There is a simple way.By creating a *.REG file . I'll show you how to create *.REG file :
  1. Launch Notepad
  2. Copy these code into the Notepad
  3. Ensure to select "All files" under Save As Type. Put the name e.g "clear adobe MRU.reg" (It is important to put .REG after a file name)
  4. Double click that *.REG file .It should look like this -> user posted image. When a pop-up asking to merge into the registry, click Yes
