That is very strange. Do you have any personal anti-spyware or anti-virus software installed that might be preventing DisplayFusion from accessing that registry key?

I have gotten this same message with my PC (HP notebook running Vista Home Prem). I disabled my anti-virus and my spyware protection but the issue was not resolved.

Anyone have any other ideas what may be causing it??

I wouldn't necessarily disable anti-malware or antivirus.
Rather set exclusions for DisplayFusion.
Your symptoms are typical of not having permission to allow changes to the Registry.
You may have to give yourself (your account) permission or elevate your permission status for Displayfusion or try and set it via an Admin account.

I'm not sure if TweakUAC will help in this case,but it will for other stuff.

PS. Since there was no followup to this post as yet,
I'm adding some other suggestions:
You could manually edit the Registry - some info here:

If you have Windows Defender,I think you can control Startup entries.
Not sure if you can add.If not, the utility below will help.

HTH :)

Thanks for the excellent suggestions Pete! Sometimes trouble-shotting permission issues like this can be very tricky, but these are some very useful utilities you have pointed out.

Thanks!
