can somebody help me here? i am running Windows XP SP2 and am having some
problems. I cannot update the registry. whenever i install a new programsuch
as Winzip the program itself installs okay but then when i go to open a ZIP
file it comes up with the "open files with...." box and i click on Winzip and
ask it to always open it with that program. I tried another program and tried
to set the default to open Zip files, but i get message box saying You need
to be an Administrator or Power User to edit the default Programs, and All
the Users on the computer are Administrators. Any ideas anyone?

You should recreate your profile.

Log in as another Administrator, rename your profile in Documents &
Settings, log out, and log in as yourself. Copy Desktop and My Documents
items back, recreate email accounts, import Inbox, Calendar etc., Favorites
etc.
