Something isnt right.

The first pics say permissions for properties. Instead of tir saying Permissions for Classes and shows nothing listed.

Yet the advanced settings show the correct permissions.

I am starting to wonder if you have corruption in your registry. The registry is just a database of sorts.

On the advanced window put a check on the 2nd check box, the Replace all existing and then click apply.

After that see if you can access any of the sub keys. :wink:

It shouldn't say change permissions on "Properties" it should say classes. Thats what doesn't make sense.

Now under classes you should have a ton of sub folders. Are you able to view any of them at all? Get a permissions screen shot of a random sub folder of classes :wink:

And it looks like it is reading them fine. Get me a screen shot of the permissions of one of those folders like I asked so I can see how they look :wink:

That's the first subfolder in the list, and the only one I can access.

Again it says permissions for properties in the title bar instal of the key name. Something is wrong on your system.

Doing a repair install would be a good idea since your registry seems to have some form of corruption. :wink:

The only discs I have for my system are 3 recovery discs, my PC didn't come with an installation disc.

I really don't want to resort to a fresh install if it can be avoided.

No not a fresh install, but a repair install. Keeps all your programs and such and saves you a lot of head ache :-)

Do NOT use the recovery cds.

Need to get your hands on a Vista SP2 disk and do a repair install with it. Might have to get it off the net (A non hack version, just a straight copy of the disk) And I only recommend this because you already own it, you just need an updated setup cd. :wink:

Something is wrong with your registry from what I can tell. You should not be having this trouble.

Also just to make sure I cover all bases, you are using an account with full access correct, an admin user account? (I am sure you are just want to be sure)

I may have lead you astray a bit with some of my screen shots.

What I've been posting are shots of the results when I right click on a random properties subfolder.

I'm sending you a shot of the result of my right clicking on a subfolder only.

Yes Shane, I have a full admin account, and no guest account.

Are you familiar with a program called D7? It is a technician's tool and has repair permissions set into it, but the end result is exactly the same.

BTW, would there be any chance you could do remote assistance on my machine?

Just a thought.

*slap* lol

Ok that makes much more sense. :cheesy:

Now that I better understand, I checked my system at each properties folder. Mine are also blocked. Looks like your just fine bud. Windows keeps those keys locked.

I was taking the word properties and thinking properties of the regkey not the folder name properties.

My fault on that one :wink:

Lol I don't fully understand.

Does this mean my registry isn't screwed at all then?

Nope your just fine. :wink:

Had I better understood from the start I would have told you that.

Windows keeps those keys locked. You cant change that. Same on my system. Your fine, not screwed up and sorry for the misunderstanding :-)

I am going to hook up an I.V. of caffeine now  :tongue:
