How to access a registry entry wo no access rights



Hi;

We have a problem where one of our customers has installed our
software which is an AddIn to Microsoft Office. The registry entries
that tell Word where to find this AddIn cannot be accessed by any
user, even when the user logs in as administrator and and does a RunAs
as the administrator.

He is not on a domain and got his computer from BestBuy where they
"optimized" Vista for him. One interesting thing - his account has no
password and it will not let him set a password (an interesting
approach to security).

Any ideas?

thanks - dave
