I have to correct an security issue that a program discovered when scanned on a Windows 2000 server. Its showing that the error or security flaw is under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\AppID registry key using regedt32. I have gone under security and permissions, have verified that no user or group other than the Administrator has full access, I have also removed the "set value" for those users/groups where this was given. However, when running the scan again I am still getting the same results.

What am I missing? How do I correct this?

Oh I have also used the dcomcfg to edit the permissions. That too didn't work.

tks in advance
