registry "hidden" keys

When I open regedit.exe and go to HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\NlaSvc not all existing keys are shown.
In fact these invisible or virtualized keys are only shown when opening regedit.exe with the Run as administrator option
What's the mechanism behind this?
thxs for enlightening me on this subject

Im runnign an admin account with UAC disabled. So Im sure its one or the other in your situation. All keys are displayed for me. Im going to lean towards UAC since it protects and virtualizes certain registry keys.

I broke one of the "feet" on my old E-Machines PS/2 keyboard I have used for years and like. I also use one at work that's pretty close to the same layout. I am looking everywhere for a keyboard with a large "enter" and "backspace" I can't find one. I don't care if it's USB or PS/2 but hate the...
