  1. Could a person just change permissions on all the HKEY main folders?

  5. I tried this fix and I can only get to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/INSTALLER... there is no COMPONENTS folder within the INSTALLER folder. The folders are named with long strings of letter/number combinations. Any help?

  7. I was in need for a genuine key, and my money were spent very well with http://www.vanskeys.com. The key worked straight away with no hassle and my office is now genuine.
