Problem with normal User and Registry in Windows 2000 domain

I am currently setting up a windows 2000 domain for work and i have a program called eFax that is used to read faxes for the users.  The problem that i have is when a normal user logs in and opens the program they get a "unable to update the system registry" error but the program still loads fine.  If i log in, i dont get any error so i know it has something to do with being a User vs Admin and so on.  I have tried to set up a Software Restriction Policy giving the users full access to the two registry keys this program uses but i still get the same error.  Does anyone else have an idea that i can try?  This is my first time setting up a domain and they have me doing it by myself and its just to much for one person to do alone so i would appreciate it for any help.
Thanks,
Ryan

if that still fails, the software may check that the user has access to write to the whole registry.

In which case, your not going to be able to do alot
