Windows 7: Permissions

Permissions

I am trying to figure out if I have a problem or not. Some recent installs of software have failed due to the inability to write to a register key. I have had to abort the install and use regedit to set permissions on the key and then start the install over. So far it has worked. What if the install software does not supply me with the offending key? I would be up the creek.
The question is something has changed in my admin account, or the install software is poorly written. Should I be looking at my settings somewhere?

Why not try a repair install. Any problems should be corrected.
Repair Install

Try this first and find out if there is any file corruption.

Sfc returns no problems. I took possesion of the "components" directory in the register. That should get all of the keys contained therein. We will see if that helps.
