Hi:

It happens to a few Windows XP users: the user is an admin, but could not
manually make new entries under to registry keys below (using regedit.exe):

HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Once, and
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run Once

Scanned for virus but it made no difference. Any thought is appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
Polaris

Check to make sure that administrators and system has read and full control
permissions to those keys. Maybe they were locked down as a precaution
against malware. --- Steve

Why are you posting XP questions in the Windows 2000 newsgroup?

Check permission settings of the keys you are trying to read/write, but my
guess is that its more operating system permissions

Thanks guys. We checked and the admin does have "Full" control permission as
indicated by regedit.exe.

We have just found out that theSpySweeper is the cause. Once the SpySweeper
is killed, everything is fine.

Take care and thanks for your input.
