I removed a virus from a Windows 7 64 bit computer. There is a registry key that I cannot remove that I think came from this virus. It is HCLM/system\currentcontrolset\services\gupdate\parameters. When I right click and select permissions it says "requested security information is either unavailable or can't be displayed"

I have tried running  psexec -i -d -s \regedit  as administrator but still can't get to it.

Can't get to it in safe mode or with all non MS services disabled.

I tried using subinacl  and followed these instructions https://www.experts-exchange.com/askQuestion.jsp?taid=86
