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.
