 DeleteSetting help for newbie

I hate to bother everyone with such simple questions, but I have found no
help in VB5 help or by searching DejaNews.

My question is:  How can I delete a specific registry key using

Could someone please be so kind as to give me an actual line as to how it
should appear?  I'm such a newbie!  I don't understand what I should put for
"AppName"  Please excuse my ignorance.  VB5 Popup help says it should be in
the format "DeleteSetting(AppName As String, [Section], [Key])"

If my reg entry is (for example):

1) What should the values for DeleteSetting(AppName As String, [Section],
[Key]) be?

PLEASE, talk to me as if I were an idiot, as when it come to VB I am!

Thank you all ever so kindly :)
