I have full admin rights on the workstation.

When I go to this key, I can't change the ownership although I an the entry above it.

Try the app TakeOwnershipPro. This may help. If not try to restart and see if it helps

Thanks - I found something called that but it is for files, not registry entries.

Thanks - that is the issue - I can't take ownership and I cannot add any security to my account for that registry key.

Try the steps after you're signed in to administrator account. Also, try taking ownership using this command:

takeown /F "<FOLDER-NAME-WITH-LOCATION>" /R /D Y
Kapil - it is a registry entry not a folder.
