windows 7 professional
error reported citing ownership problem

When applying the registry patch Replace_Start_Menu_Help_with_Search.reg Windows (Pro) returns an error that the data was not written to the registry because "some keys are open by the system or other processes." I have enabled the ownership for the administrator as outlined in the tutorial. Looking through the open processes I don't find something that obviously is editing or "owning" the registry file. Can you suggest how I can troubleshoot? The patch fails to install.
