Further to  mladenovicz suggestion....
You must use regedt32 to be able to set registry security. If you are having a problem developing then you need read/write permissions.  When running the user nees read permissions. The normal and more user-friendly regedit does not show the security options.

Another good way of resolving strange error conditions is to use filemon.exe (a free download). Filemon shows access to any file, including registry, as sometimes security issues are not always registry issues.

You can try to use regclean to clean the registry

You should be given permissions by an administrator using the reged32.exe (Registry Administration Tool)
Better to give read permissions for all keys vix HK_LOCAL_MACHINE etc....

Contact a administrator and this problem will be resolved.
