Reg Edit why cant I?

  User-8E96A7DC-29F4-4E64-AAADAB70EE844734 13:52 12 Jan 2005

In HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE I have an entry called
ALTNET, this annoying piece of adware/spyware
was picked up by Spybot Search and Destroy
and the program cannot repair it straight away only after a restart, but then still doesnt fix it.

My question is, while I have full control in
REGEDIT why cant I delete the registry entry
ALTNET folder and the subfolders. I get error
message saying 'cannot delete Altnet, error while deleting key'?

Any ideas?

Try deleting it in safe mode (Tap F8 when booting)

The second has a free trial version, but I don't know whether it has any features disabled
