Question about "PnpLockdownFiles" in the registry
« on: March 09, 2012, 10:53:58 PM »
I wonder about permissions in the registry in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Setup\PnpLockdownFiles
I wonder if you have full permissions here?

When I uninstall the Nvidia graphic card driver, it is usually left some registry keys here, I have changed it manually so I have full permission and delete the files I want to delete but then I change it back.
Should it be "read" in permission of PnpLockdownFiles?
