On Windows 2000 PC, I'm having problems installing software upgrade, get error message, "Error 1402: (key name). Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel."  This happens even when I log in as admin.
Software vendor says to turn off user profiles before running setup.  How do I do that?

On the Start menu, point to Settings, and click Control Panel. Double-click the Passwords icon.
Click the User Profiles tab. Click All users of this computer use the same preferences and desktop settings. Click ok

?? There's no "passwords" icon in control panel, but there is a "users and passwords" icon.  It does not have a User profile tab or any option to change anything about user profiles.

I am sorry for the confusion, the solution above works only for win95, 98 and ME where the user profiles can be turned off.

WIthout turning the user profiles off, may be you can install the software by doing this work around. The key name where you are getting insufficient permissions, right-click on that key and give EVERYONE full control, then install the software. Once you are done, you can reset the permission on that key.
(To get to the registry, start-run-regedit, do ctrl-F, and search for the key name where you getting error)
Please let me know how this works.
