Windows 7 64 Bit Registry Issue

My windows 7 64 bit Pro edition has a USB issue open and They want me to delete all referances of this usb device sandisk
So I ran as administrator regedt32 and when I get into the system area I get access denied while trying to delete keys

I tried to change the permissions and it fails with access denied also

I am defined as an administrator of my local pc

I even tried in safe mode

I downloaded a reg cleaner but that costs money and I do not trust those programs

Need to remove those keys how can I change the persmisons so I can?

I would hate to have to reformat and resinstall

I already have a laptop that I may have to do that on also

So I hope we can come up with a solution

Thanks

Maybe you need a sledge hammer...

Try taking ownership of the key with this little app... http://www.resplendence.com/reglite

First off, I would be careful deleting any disk out of the registry -- bad mooju.

Second, try to backup the registry by creating a system restore point:

Third, launch regedit as an administrator
1. Navigate to C:\windows\system32\regedit.exe
2. Right-click regedit.exe and "Run as administrator"
3. Try deleting now

Same problem, with probable solution:
go to the following file on C:\windows\system32\group policy\gpt.cnfg , and change the administrative privilege to full access.

Software that I downloaded was able to delete all the entries in one swoop very good

Now I can go back to my orignal issue
