You apparently don't have enough priviledges to edit the registry, that's why the tool won't create the export file. Is this a work computer, or yours? Do you have anyone available who CAN log in as Administrator?

I've never had to recover an Administrator password before, I know there are ways to do it, but I'd like to go the safest route. I've asked for suggestions from the experts, I'll have an answer for you soon.

actually, i found out the password for the Administrator account and i logged on in safe mode. then i used the RegSearch.exe for svchGst.exe but got the same error again for creating the reg.txt file. it also shows the same information in notepad as last time.

also, i have admin rights for the current user as well as being able to log in as Administrator.

Good, now let's go with another registry search tool, since the other isn't working for us. Please download Registry Search tool here http://www.billsway.com/vbspage/. Extract it to it's own folder and double-click to run it.

Paste svchGst.exe into the find box and click 'OK'. It will run for a time, and open a notepad document. Post the text in a reply here.

Just in case this doesn't work, and I'm not at all sure why the other tool didn't, can you run regedit? (Click Start >> Run and type regedit in the box). As a rule, I try not to ask people to manually edit the registry, but we may need to do so.
