You can never open a subkey directly.
You always need to open the root key above it first.
There are only 2 "real" root keys, which work remotely: HKLM and HKU.
If you don't want a network user to open this root keys, you need to remove
their rights from these keys, but be aware:
- This will make not much sense, because they can't gain much with read
access only to the root, and they might even have problems with access to
network printers afterwards.
- You need to replace read access for users with the pseudo group LOCAL,
otherwise the local users and services wont't be able to use the machine.
