    I'm trying to install a program. It almost finishes and then it brings up this error message thats says "Error creating registry key" and "RegCreateKeyEx failed; code 5. Access is denied."

    There's an attached image.

    I'm a computer administrator and my computer's working fine.

    Is there any way to fix this?

    "Quote"In registry navigate to the key you are having trouble with and right click it. Select permissions and set them any way you like. You may need to set yourself as the owner of the key first to able to change it.

    disable the MS anti-spyware and try again.
