    If you are trying to uninstall IE 7, but the uninstaller hangs when it is
    updating the registry, try this.

    Press the Windows Key + R
    Type "regedit" and press Enter
    Navigate on the right through HKEY_CURRENT_USER / AppEvents / Schemes /
    Apps / Explorer / FeedDiscovered
    remove the "[]" after "kon0" by right clicking on the kon0 folder and select
    "rename"

    The uninstaller should now complete successfully.

    IE7 comes with an installer, which is thoroughly documented on other posts.
    In the Add/Remove Programs app, click the "Show Updates" box at the top, then
    scroll down until you find the IE7 Beta. The other option is to enter in the
    run dialogue "%windir%\$NtUninstallie7bet2p$\spuninst\spuninst.exe" verbatim.

    I have that very problem, but have no Kon0[] key.
    I do have a ajhd0[] key but removing the "[]" did nothing.

    Any other ideas?

    I also had a esljh0ö key so removed the "ö" too and it worked.

    Thx

    I noticed that the uninstaller was hanging at a specific point, and my
    processor usage was at 100% the whole time, so the uninstaller was stuck in a
    loop. I used the program Regmon from
    http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/Regmon.html to figure out which
    registry key(s) were causing the problems.

    Monitor the keys being searched for by the uninstaller and then go to that
    place in the registry to see if there are invalid characters or something
    else that the uninstaller can't handle.

    just to be safe, I was using [] in my posts to represent the box placeholder
    for characters
