Had this problem a while ago as well.
Something is VERY WRONG with this server, permissions have been manipulated deeply.
Solution is here:
Workaround 2 did it for me:
As a workaround for the problem you can run the following command at the command prompt to reset the permissions in registry rather than rebuilding the box:
SECEDIT /CONFIGURE /CFG %WINDIR%\INF\DEFLTBASE.INF /DB DEFLTBASE.SDB /VERBOSE /AREAS REGKEYS
Disclaimer: The above command would revert all security settings to the default and thus may be used as a workaround to avoid rebuilding the server.
