Have you tried running RegEdit from an Administrator:Command Prompt window?
Start | All Programs | Accessories, right-click on Command Prompt, then Run
as Administrator. You'll need Administrator credentials to get past this
This should open the usual Command Prompt window (We old-timers still often
incorrectly call it a "DOS window"), but the Title Bar should say,
"Administrator:Command Prompt". Any .exe file run from this window should
automatically "run elevated". (I find this very useful and I use it often,
so I've put it a shortcut into my Quick Launch - but it still needs the
password every time I open this window.)
Then, in this window, just type "regedit" and press Enter.
