Suggestion for FAQ update

I have spent the last day fighting with getting context menu’s to work with Windows 7 x64. When trying to update the registry key in the steps that the FAQ outlines (http://tortoisesvn.net/faq.html#nomenus), I never able to have permission to add myself. Tried logging in as my user, giving my user administrator access, logging in as domain administrator and logging in as computer administrator – all gave the error that I had insufficient privileges to add myself with allow all access on that key.

The workaround to finally allow me to fix that key and fix the context menus where to download Sysinternals PsTools (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896649) and launch regedit with the following command:

PsExec.exe -i -d -s c:\windows\regedit.exe

This gives you full permissions in the registry to allow you to fix HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT/*/​shellex/ContextMenuH​andlers/TortoiseSVN. Might not hurt to add that to the FAQ in case others experience the same challenge.
