Unable to delete requested key!

Recommended Posts

JScript

Hello,

Is there a way to remove a registry key with a security protection like:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Enum

I need to remove the entire key Enum...

How can I set the security of an registry key?

Someone can help me, please?

There is a good reason, why you cannot remove this key: if you did, you computer would stop working until you reinstall Windows.

A friendly advice: if you don't know, how to set security in the the registry, you shouldn't mess around with deleting keys that uncle Bill seeks to protect from manipulation.


UDFS & Apps:


DDEML.au3 - DDE Client + Server[*]
Localization.au3- localize your scripts[*]
TLI.au3 - type information on COM objects (TLBINF emulation)[*]
TLBAutoEnum.au3 - auto-import of COM constants (enums)[*]
AU3Automation - export AU3 scripts via COM interfaces
TypeLibInspector

Thanks for your explanation, but it will be done in "offline", more precisely in a straight running WindowsXP installation from a CD: http://www.boot-land.net/forums/index.php?showtopic=3890

Removing this registry key will no longer produce the BSOD 0x7b on some computers.

I've done manually, just wanted to automate the arduous task.

Hmm... curious, what do you need this for and what is exactly the procedure?

Basically you can adjust permissions on a registry key in different ways: via WMI or AdvAPI. Both ways could be, however, pain in the butt as you have to take ownership of the key first. I would just start the part of the script that modifies registry with SYSTEM account privileges, this wouldn't require touching permissions at all. See this UDF by wraithdu.
