Wait for NoelDP. Don't change anything.

The subkeys of that registry key (about 10): permissions->advanced. All permissions are "inherited" ?

There are very few places in Windows where 'Everyone' should be mentioned at all - let alone with Full permissions.
The permissions shown would make repair easier - but should not exist in the first place and potentially indicate that the machine has been 0wned at some point in the past.
I'm beginning to think in terms of at least a repair install (if not a clean one)

Ok... What's the easiest way to do the repair? I don't have a home premium x64 disc.
