Registry Editing / Permission Denied even "run as administrator"
I'm having a problem updating the drivers to my Saitek X52. Apparently old
drivers from XP do not properly uninstall and I have to manually clean out
the registry because the new drivers tell me to plug in the jostick to
install the drivers but when I do nothing happens. I notice a generic driver
pop in the under device manager when I plug in the joystick, so I'm trying to
clean out the registry of my SAITEK entries.

Unfortunately on several I am getting "permission denied" under safe mode,
under run as administrator, can't change the owner because I still get
'permission denied.'

Is there a different way to clean out my USB ids or what am I supposed to
do? I see that the SYSTEM is the only user allowed full rights to the key -
how do I log in as SYSTEM ?

this should work - you should be able to change permissions and take
ownership.
Did you try this also with disabled UAC?

Hi

It took me 2.5 hours to go through dozens upon dozens of registry keys, flip
ownership and then change permissions....when trying to perform this at a
higher level and using the option for changing it for all keys below the one
I was working on, it failed....was painful and frustrating. I would rather
turn off UAC forever and deal with the risk than waste my Saturday fighting
with my OS on basic simple tasks.
