Unable to complete the operation in "Application" Access is denied.

This error occurs when accessing all but the security event log (not just "application").  I have checked the permissions on the system32\config folder, and the actual evt files (which inherit their permissions from their folder) and all seems in order.  There also isn't a difference between secevent.evt and the others.
This has been an ongoing issue I have been unable to solve for a while.  We are currently unable to access the event logs which is a real pain.
