    Hello friends,

    I just came across this on a Win7 64 bit system. The standard user account has "full control" permissions over the registry key HKLM\Software. Thats pretty strange considering the following:

    1) SUA has full control permissions over its own registry key HKCU
    2) SUA in Win7 32 bit does NOT have full control over HKLM\Software

    Can anyone please check on their own systems and kindly confirm? Is this a bug in Win7 64 bit?

    Thank you :)
