Logon to the machine in safe mode.

Windows 7 and Vista have a 100,200,300,400 permission structure

100 -IE
200- User
300- Admin
400 - System

When you logon to safe mode you are given level 400.

Mcklane--At what point are you denied access?  
Normally you would right click on the Key|Permissions|Advanced|highlight the account|Edit.

Which key are you attempting to change? Is it for something you setup or could it be windows protected?

Also as jcimarron asked, at what point are you getting the problem. Is it permissions for a domain user account? Or a local account?

right click the registry key and select permissions, then press advanced button.
Does any account have full control? Make sure you run the regedit tool as elevated.

Why would you need you need to edit that reg key?
