So, I'm trying to uninstall a program through its uninstaller and it throws the following error: Error 1402: could not open key: [slightly mutilated key path, though I know what they refer to] Verify that you have sufficient access to that key, or contact your support personnel. I figured, okay, I just have to take ownership and change permissions, but I can't. No user or usergroups are listed in the permissions list, and it won't let me take ownership. Looking online does not help at all, as they all seem to say the same thing. Any thoughts? edit: I am running Windows 7 x64 Enterprise and regedit with administrator privileges.
