Thread: Registry - Access Denied

    Registry - Access Denied

    Hello,
    I am logged in as the administrator in Vista Home Premium.
    I want to change the Internet Time Sync Settings in the registry.
    I know what value to put into the registry locations with the name
    "specialpollinterval".
    But Vista will not allow me to do so : I am gitting an "Access Denied" error
    when I try to change something in here.

    Any clue what I do wrong ?

    Thanks

    Hi,

    You have to change either ownership or permissions on the intended key. It
    is likely limited to the system only if it is a critical one. Right click
    the key to start.

    Right click on ntp client and select permissions and adjust as needed.

    Re: Registry - Access Denied

    I am not allowed to do that John.
    Although I log in as the Administrator.
    With administrator I mean that I created when setting up my system from
    scratch.

    There must be something "higher" that keeps me from editing system-things in
    the registry, but what ?
    I have no clue and was hoping that one of you guys would be able to point me
    in the right direction.

    Thanks

    Re: Registry - Access Denied

    Hi,

    In Vista, an administrator still has to invoke root privileges to make
    system changes. Elevated privilege is not on by default, nor can it be, nor
    should it be.

    Right click the key in question, choose permissions. Then click advanced and
    either edit permissions for your user account or group (recommended), or
    change ownership (not really a good idea as this may cause other issues). If
    you are unable to access permissions, try running regedit as administrator
    by right click in the file and using the 'run as administrator' option.

    Re: Registry - Access Denied

    Use Rick's directions, but I am curious. You set up a new user account
    called administrator instead of enabling the default administrator account?

    Re: Registry - Access Denied

    I did get an answer, just is not correct. If I try to change the permissions
    to full control in as soon as I hit apply the checks I just added are removed
    and permission remains unchanged. Doesn't matter if you log in as
    administrator or run regedit as administrator, these permissions cannot be
    changed.

    Ken,

    What registry values are you trying to change?

    In Vista, as part of the added security, many important Registry keys are
    now owned by the "TrustedInstaller" user context - *not* by the
    Administrator. By default, not even the Administrator has permission to
    change these values. Yes, in Vista, you need to give up the idea the
    Administrator can do anything on the machine - it cannot.

    When you go to change the Permissions on the Registry Key, first look to see
    who the owner is (go Advanced, Owner). If the key is owned by
    TrustedInstaller, you will need to change the ownership to Administrator.
    Then exit out of the Permissions dialogue. Then re-open the Permissions, and
    try to change them again. If Administrator is the owner of the key, it
    should work.

    For maximum security, you should change the owner back to TrustedInstaller
    again, when you are finished editing the values.

    If the Registry key you're editing is *not* on of the ones owned by
    TrustedInstaller, and you cannot change the permissions or data as
    Administrator, then ... sorry, I dunno. That's truly weird.

    Hope it helps,
    Andrew

    Re: Registry - Access Denied

    Thanks, your the first to understand my problem. I am trying to clean some
    garbage out of the registry left from an HP printer. HP engineers led me to
    the follow keys to attempt to delete but needless to say we were not
    successful. HKLM, System, Controlset001m Enum, usb, VID_03FO. We spent an
    hour trying to change permissions without success. Finally we concluded its a
    vista control and will have to be delt with in an unusual way. I tried your
    steps but still access is denied regardless how I log in or who the owner is.
    I don't know where to go from here.

    Re: Registry - Access Denied

    First, I don't find a Terry Farrel. Second, I still doubt you understand the
    problem. I have 2 computers with vista installed, you can attempt to edit the
    registry key, HKLM, System, Controlset001, Enum, USB, any key,,,, and try to
    edit it or delete it. I don't care if your logged in as Administrator, User,
    Owner, God or Peter. ACCESS DENIED. Give it a try then give me another smart
    answer. UNDERSTAND THE PROBLEM. Sorry for this approach but, other than
    myself are having same experience. You might be smarter than all of HP's
    engineers and they failed to accomplish this feat.
