Unable remove assembly from GAC

Hi all
I have two one signing assembly registered in GAC in two different version.
I want to remove them but I don't seem able to do so. First I used
gacutil.exe, failed with this error message

C:\>gacutil /u myCompany.theAssemblyName.dll

Microsoft (R) .NET Global Assembly Cache Utility. Version 1.1.4322.573
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation 1998-2002. All rights reserved.

No assemblies found that match: myCompany.theAssemblyName.dll

Number of items uninstalled = 0
Number of failures = 0

I tried delete the assembly from windows explorer c:\winnt\assembly but also
to no avail. Now I'm stump, any one has any idea what am I doing wrong?

TIA

Update
I deleted HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Installer\Assemblies\Global 's default value and
executed command. Now I'm getting this error message.
