Need to know how to change the permissions for these registry keys, all of my Wuauserv keys are corrupt.
I am the only person/admin on my laptop. I caught a nasty virus several weeks ago and after several scans from avast, avira, spybot, ad-ware, malwarebytes, trojan remover, ccleaner, HJT, and superantispyware I final got rid of it. However it changed all of my settings. including my autoupdate, Bits, etc... I have been able to get everything back up except the autoupdate.
I was scrolling through the registry and found under HKLM\system\currentcontrolset\services\wuauserv that my image path is %fystemroot%\system32\svchost.exe -k netsvcs.
Obviously this is wrong and it should read %Systemroot%. However when i right click it and try to change the permissions it keeps telling me that I cannot change it, access denied. I am logged in as the admin. I have tried to change it through services as well with no joy! Please help! thanks in advance.
