Verify that the local users group has read permission to the following registry key.
This error can occur if Windows Update Services Service Pack 2 was applied after EminentWare was installed.
As a follow-up, this scenario may also occur after installation of KB2720211, or anytime WSUS is installed/reinstalled/upgraded on a machine where Patch Manager is already installed. Patch Manager sets the ACL on this registry key at installation, but WSUS deletes and recreates the key, without the ACL change.
