Secedit.sdb Error

I have a Windows 7 machine that is reporting Source: SceCli (Event ID: 1005): Some Jet database is corrupt.  I ran the suggested esentutl /g which reported no errors.  I tried running with /r and /p which would not run.

I then tried to run:

1. Open the %SystemRoot%\Security folder, create a new folder, and then
name it "OldSecurity".
2. Move all of the files ending in .log from the %SystemRoot%\Security
folder to the OldSecurity folder.
3. Find the Secedit.sdb file in the %SystemRoot%\Security\Database folder,
and then rename this file to "Secedit.old".
4. Click Start, click Run, type mmc, and then click OK.
5. Click Console, click Add/Remove Snap-in, and then add the Security and
Configuration snap-in.
6. Right-click Security and Configuration and Analysis, and then click Open
Database.
7. Browse to the %SystemRoot%\Security\Database folder, type Secedit.sdb in
the File name box, and then click Open.
8. When you are prompted to import a template, click Setup Security.inf,
and then click Open.

However attempts failed with "Access to database has been denied" errors.  No matter what login I use.  I even tried logging in as local administrator in Safe mode.

So I'm thinking the DB may not be corrupt just can't be accessed because of permissions.  Has anyone come across similar issue?

I've already tried sugegstions from:
