    Hello,

    While making few changes in to windows registry, i have mistakenly configured deny permissions to ‘HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSet’ container.

    Is there any way to retain the permissions. I am thinking that Rebuilding the machine is only the option at

    Machine OS: Windows XP 64 Bit.

    Many Thanks in Advance..

    You could try booting into safe mode

    Thanks Ossian,

    I tried with Safe Mode, With “Repair Windows” (The first screen while installing OS) but haven’t got success. ..

    No, not Repair — you can press F8 when you are loading Windows and select Safe Mode, then you should get access to the OS and can try fixing registry permissions.

    Also if System Restore is enabled, you could try rolling back to before you messed the registry up.

    Failing that, it is only a client machine, so presumably backed up, and a format and reinstall would not take too long.
