Program can't access registry on startup with limited user account

I have a computer that limited users log into for internet access.  There is a program that runs for the media kit for the keyboard.  I gives the following error on startup:  "Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator".  I'm looking how to change the permissions for this program or the specific registry settings.  Thanks

you have to find the registry key/folder for this program in regedit, and have to set the permissions to add these limited user profiles there.

SheharyaarSaahil,

Are there any good programs or ways to find out what registry keys will need to be changed?

I found the keys, but for some reason whenever I change the permissions to the key under the admin account to full control it gets changed back to read only when the user logs in.

I know this is just a workaround, but can't you give the other user account temporary admin rights, make the changes that you need using that account, and change them back to a regular user?
