We are running Win XP SP 2. Our users need to be able to run a script that
changes the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE

We have given our users full control under this register key, but still
receive the messgae "registry editing have been disabled by your admin"
message.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Lift Restrictions from the Registry Editor (Line 275)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

Manual:

Start/Run/Regedit
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

Value Name: DisableRegistryTools
Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
Value Data: (0 = allow regedit, 1 = disable regedit)

Create a new DWORD value named 'DisableRegistryTools' and set the value to
'1' to disable registry editing functions.
Restart Windows for the change to take effect.

Save the file to the root of your C drive, naming it regfix.reg. Open a
command prompt window (start, run, cmd.exe) and enter the following
command: regedit -s c:\regfix.reg

Type in that command in hit the enter key. You should then be able to run
regedit.
