Endpoint Security is blocking System Information Reporter from restoring registry entries
Technical Articles ID:   KB86050
Last Modified:  8/6/2018


McAfee Endpoint Security (ENS) 10.x
McAfee System Information Reporter (SIR) 1.x


SIR is unable to restore registry entries in ENS-protected registries.


An ENS Self Protection rule is blocking the restore.


To resolve this issue, do one of the following: 
  • Connect to Arbitrary Access Control (AAC) and add the exceptional allow rule for regedit.
  • Do not use regedit, and update the application to make the registry changes directly.
