You could be running a program that keeps you from changing the registry. Some firewalls & some virus protection programs stop this, I know becuase I had the same problem with installing another program...I can't remember what the program was though, I think it was frontpage or something like that.
Anyway, just log offline and close your firewall & virus scan and try again. Er. Don't log off you have to download >> lol

When you boot up, after the memory & bios checks and everything are done, press and hold F10, A boot loader screen should pop up, choose "safe mode" and when the logon screen apears choose administrator and BOOM. There y'go, but I think your problem is more likely caused by a Virus scan program. Some don't let you write to the registry.
