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

Maybe you need a sledge hammer...

Try taking ownership of the key with this little app...

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.

I am only deleting sandisk entries

I tried those options and it still will not delete

also gave full controll to authenticate users on gpt.cnfg and still get access denied

Can not delete these bloddy keys

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
