It might be a security program blocking the Registry change it needs to
make. A few, but not all, of the programs now doing this are:
IBM Access Connections
McAfee VirusScan and/or Antispyware
Spybot> Tools> IE Tweaks
Zone Alarm (free) 6.5 Reported to be fixed in later versions.
In the case of Zone Alarm 6.5 or Norton 2007 it actually has to be
uninstalled. Make sure the Windows Firewall is turned on until you
reinstall Zone Alarm.
Boot into Safe Mode with Networking and try the change.
