I have a Sony vaio running Vista ultimate and am unable to rename network files, even when I am domain admin on the network share.

I have tried this regedit : create the following DWORD registry
value with a value of 1 and restart the system.

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\CSC\Parameters\FormatDatabase.

And upon rebooting the laptop announces "it has recovered from a serious error and has removed the regedit.
Syncing Offline doesn't work either.

Thank you for this, However anytime I add this to the registry the laptop reboots in "this unit has recovered from a serious error" and the regedit has been removed.
Very strange indeed..

when I read http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934160/en-us, I discoverd this laptop had been upgraded from Vista home Premium OEM to Vista Ultimate, and was possibly corrupted during the upgrade.
