I managed to reproduce this problem.

When looking at te permissions of the 'C:\Documents and
Settings\UserName\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA' folder (at the
problem machine) they are:

- inherited from 'C:\'
- Everyone: Full Access

If I start a XP Pro machine and then look at the permission of the RSA
folder I see:

- inherited from 'C:\'
- Everyone: Read & Execute, List Folder Content, Read
- Administrators: Full Controll
- System: Full Controll
- Creator Owner: Full Controll

So I tried to change the permissions of my C:\ drive to:

- Everyone: Full Access

After doing this I get the 'Keyset does not exist error'. When I add
Administrators and System again it still doesn't work. If I add Creator
Owner it does work. If I now play with the owner and permission groups I can
also sometimes get it to work without the creator owner group.

Why do I have to add these groups if I already have Everyone to Full
Controll? I always thought that Everyone contains EVERYONE and not Everyony
minus Administrator, etc.

Now I only have to see if this is also the solution for the other machine
having the 'Keyset does not exist' error.
