Registry permission error



I run windows xp.

I recently had some malaware but have been able to fix that problem.

My Nero stopped working. I am trying to reinstall the programme on my system.

I am getting a message saying there is an error accessing the registry.

When I go into the registry and locate the key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Nero - I am told that there is an error opening
the key.

When I left click to change the permissions I am told that I do not have
permissions to view the current key, but I can make permission changes. The
permissons for this key are blank - and I add myself, Administrator and
System permissions and then it states that permission changes cannot be
added. Access is denied.

I would be grateful for any help.

Are you logged in as Administrator (or one of the administrators group) when
this denial of access happens?

Try tapping the F8 key on pc start-up,select "safe mode",enter xp as thee
"administrator",make the changes in regedit..
