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.

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.
