I have a Windows XP SP2 computer that is having trouble reinstalling quicktime, it gives a permissions error during the process.  I've traced the problem to several registry keys.  The user is an administrator on the computer, but they can't view/modify/delete several keys related to quicktime.  I can't even open the permissions on those keys.  How can I modify the permissions on the keys or delete the keys?
