Hello,
in my system, I have some locked registry keys which are not manually editable using RegistryEditor. Those are keys of my security program. So that I decided to make a service application using vb.net 2010 so that it can change the keys with its administrative privilege.
But still I'm getting no luck.

Any solution?
Thanks.

There is no such thing as a "locked" registry key, the key has a permission set and you have to run the app as a user that has permission to write to the key. You can review permissions with Registry Editor.
