Hi Jeremy,

This error means that your computer is trying to open a key in the registry. I am not really sure what kind of key is it trying to open but I'm sure that it is one of the programs in your computer. The key it's trying open is somewhere in the  HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftware… For your issue, it is a problem with .raw subkey. This error is a behavior is by design and has been implemented for security reasons. To resolve this kind of issue, you have to these following steps:

1. Right-click the IMA key folder and choose Permissions.
2. Click the Advanced button and select the Owner tab.
3. Verify the “Current owner of this item” is correct, then select the Replace owner on subcontainers and objects check box and click OK.
4. You may receive a standard Registry Editor warning, because some of the IMA subkeys do not have an owner (for example, the Data subkey). This message does not apply to the subkeys specified above. Click OK on the warning message: "Registry Editor could not set owner on the key currently selected, or some of its subkey". After clicking on OK, you are now able to access all of the IMA subkeys. You won't get this error anymore. Hope this helps. Have a great day.
