Also permissions on the key show Full for administrators (and i made myself the owner).
It does not matter if you are a Domain Admin or not, if Domain Policy is set to restrict access to this registry key you will be restricted. Are you the Real Domain Admin or do you just have access as the Domain Admin? If the domain you are part of has a Real Domain Admin that is setting Domain Policy that is why you are unable to change this key even though you have a Domain Admin account or even if you are using the same Domain Admin account as the Real Admin that is setting Domain Policy. Setting Domain Policy can be tricky because it can have effects like this when you did not mean it too. If you are the only Domain Admin have you set Domain Policies that could have caused this issue??
