Access to registry key denied RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I'm attempting to get around this error:

    Access to the registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\PowerShell\1\ShellIds\Microsoft.PowerShell' is denied.

    + CategoryInfo          : PermissionDenied: (:) [Set-ExecutionPolicy], UnauthorizedAccessException

    When I run the following, everything looks good:

    S C:\Windows\system32> Get-ExecutionPolicy -List

            Scope ExecutionPolicy
            ----- ---------------
    MachinePolicy       Undefined
       UserPolicy       Undefined
          Process    RemoteSigned
      CurrentUser    RemoteSigned
     LocalMachine    RemoteSigned

    Any idea why I can't run things despite having the right permissions in place? I'm running powershell and/or CMD as administrator too. I've also checked the registry key, local administrators have full access over it

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
