SecurityException: Requested Registry Access is not allowed

P: n/a
In my visual studio (enterprise arch. 2003) when I try to open my projects,
or add to a project a component (vb windows project)
I get a big red X inside a red frame and the error pops up:

The following exception has occured:

SecurityException: Requested Registry Access is not allowed.

I have already re-installed visual studio (repair mode), that did not fix
the problem. I am not sure what registry entry this thing is trying to
access that I need to fix permissions on. I do not recall changing any
registry permissions either.

Having worked in miscellaneous environments the past couple of years,
I'd try the quick fix - make sure I'm logged in with administrator privileges,
reinstall and wait for the voila.

I have fixed the problem. I had removed some permissions on one key in
internet explorer to prevent software from changing my home page. Why
visual studio needs to read/write to this key, I don't know. But I set up
regmon from sysinternals and filtered by DEVENV process and filtered out
successes. I then caught the one key where access was denied and used
regedt32 to resotore the default permissions.
