Can any one help me.
I have windows XP sp2 Home Edition.

When you have uninstalled a program then go to reinstall it you get the following error and it

can not be (re)installed.

Error creating registry key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall
(On the end of this RegKey is the programs name.)

RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 5
Access is denied

The problem Keys are always in the

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstallsection, you can not manually edit it (with RegEdit) as it just says no access.

But other RegKeys in the same section can be manually edited?.
Does any one know to sort this out.
