Hi

I really should know this myself, but I need help!!!!

I am running Windows 2000 on local machines, server NT.

I need to give a user full rights to the registry on his local Machine.

Please can you tell me how!

Many thanks.

You might as well just add this user to the "LOCAL ADMINS" group.  If you give a user write permission to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE portion of the registy, then they can obtain administrator access anyway.

But if you must, open REGEDT32 and modify the permissions on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE hive to permit the user to have full access.  Note that you must use REGEDT32 and NOT REGEDIT.  REGEDIT has no ACL modification capabilities.
