Re: System Registry

Discussion in 'Windows XP Security' started by Kent W. England [MVP], Dec 18, 2003.

  1. Non-admin users can't write to the HKLM branch, which is where most
    application installers write the system-wide keys they need to run.

    I would logon to an admin account and redo the installation.
