There is more to windows registry than only normal user and administrator. There are also permissions for each key/directory. Right-click on the "directory" and you will see an entry "permissions" in the context menu. This allows you to set "full"/"read"/"special" access. You have to set the right permissions first, before you can edit the keys - even with an administrator account.
