  1. Administrator doesn't have access to change owner in registry


    Hello,

    the question is according to Windows 10 x64.

    I was trying to uninstall Symantec Endpoint Protection and uninstaller shows an error - access denied to registry.

    I was trying to change permission manually in registry with Admin account, but no luck. Still error - access is denied.

    Please see screenshots.

    Any ideas?

  2. windows 7 administrator won't allow registry changes

    I just changed it back to Low and nothing changed.
    While installing Magix music maker...it says " registry error - Registry editing has been disabled by you administrator "


    I tried running it as administrator and got the same. even on vista compatible and nothing changed.

    I only just got windows 7 last week and it is clean.

    What else could be causing this?

    Administrator doesn't have access to change owner in registry

    Change Owner of File, Folder, Drive, or Registry Key in Windows 10  


    I tried this command sequence

    Code:
    Code:
    icacls "<Apply_Directory_Path>" /grant "Administrators":F /T /C icacls "<Apply_Directory_Path>" /setowner "Administrators" /T /C pushd "<Apply_Directory_Path>" && ( rd /S /Q "<Apply_Directory_Path>" 2>nul & popd )
    but it does not work because the first command can not access some directories or files since this command does not have access to these directories/files or it does not find them. Why?

    Thanks

    Bye
