What can I do to modify an XP registry as Administrator, but not permitted?? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Computer is XP SP3. I am in the Administrative Group. The only user. In the Control Panel listed as Administrative Rights. In Computer Management Users and Groups listed as Administrative Group. BUT I cannot edit/modify in any way the Registry. Says Not allowed. Error in change of data. Cannot delete a test subkey.

    Basically I am locked out of making any changes to the Registry. WHY?? And What can I do to correct this??

    Thanks.
