I'm having problems installing itunes and getting a registry access
error 1402 - Could not open key.

The problem is with the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\CLASSES\AUDIOCD\SHELL\PLAY

Seems to be a permissions problem, but giving full access in my
registry doesn't fix ...

Any ideas would be most appreciated.

Run the install under an account with Admin privileges and/or the system
admin account as this is being written to Local Machine. Other than that,
check with itunes.

You are most welcome. :o ) Home has nothing to do with your privileges. To
gain access to your System Admin account in Home: Boot to Safe Mode, and
logon.

How to boot into Safe Mode:

You need to hit F8 during boot, just after the BIOS info switches to black
screen. Or...

Go to Start/Run/Msconfig. Boot.Ini and check off /SafeBoot. Apply/Ok,
reboot.
Note: Before leaving safe mode, revert.

Tip:

TweakUI/Logon/Show Administrator on the Welcome Screen
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/pro/downloads/powert...

Or...

Enable/Disable Administrator on Welcome Screen (Line 5)
http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm

Note:

If you have disabled the built in administrator account, booting into
Safe Mode will automatically enable it again (temporarily, for that
Safe Mode session).

Added note: If you want to logon to one of the other users, hold down shift
as the system boots up.
