wwwDAVRoot Error: You might not have permission, cannot open SharePoint folder in Windows Explorer

Attached is the error that we are getting when trying to open a Sharepoint folder in Windows Explorer.  

We tried increasing permissions.  No success.

The Web Client service is started.  So, there is no need to mess with it.

And, I cannot edit the registry on the IIS box to contain a new DWORD value as a Microsoft KB article suggested.  When I try to go to Edit...New...DWORD, the Registry Editor tells me that it can't create a value.

I'd rather not move any of the documents in this document library for fear of losing or messing up those documents.

What is the fix for this?
