    Any idea what causes this? Those registry key do exists (list is rather long, same error). I'm using Windows 7 Professional x64.

    Some keys are locked by windows and you can't just delete them. Still trying new things to set the permissions and such, but no luck yet.

    So apparently it's not possible to set ownership of certain registry entries even with SetACL? Well that's bad thing then. Maybe it will be implemented in future SetACL versions.

    Hi,

    i tried using SetACL on those registry keys and it still doesn't allow it to remove them. But i will keep looking into this and hope to fix it or find a way around it.
