You know, I'd like to tell you I know why this happens to some folks and not others but I don't. I've seen all sorts of thoughts on the matter, some saying it's the user's fault, others blaming the OS. I do know it happens more on upgrades than fresh installs but in the end W7 can display "permission schizophrenia" at any time - but not for everyone. Running a subinacl script to change ownership on all registry keys and on folders will generally be a permanent fix.
