inaccessible registry?

By jaywise ·
I've encountered a lock-out from some areas of the registry in XP Pro sp2. Specifically, I cannot edit permissions on HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services keys. At the same time, HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SessionManager cannot accept an edit to run chkdsk.

Any ideas?

On a domain or no?

by Jessie In reply to inaccessible registry?

Need more info... are you logging into a domain (possible GPO lockout) and what is your logon permission level?

Wrong forum

This is a tech. problem, in search of a solution.

It properly belongs in "Technical Q&A," not in "Discussions." Please re-post there.

Not only will you be more likely to attract the attention of those seeking to provide answers, but you will also make it easier for those seeking discussions to find such.

Thank you.
