Are you just getting the error that it is in use?

If you need to edit it and Windows won't let you, either try booting into safe mode and try to edit it or boot off a livecd and edit it that way.

No, it says that it has been locked by the admin.

If you were able to edit the file before, has something changed? Like a new GPO being pushing down or something?

I don't recall any GPO that would prevent editing the boot.ini files, but it's been a while since I actually dug thru the stuff you can do with them.

What happens if you try to copy the boot.ini file to the desktop?

That's what i was thinking, whatever the admin has done to it, its untouchable now (as is the registry, which i could edit a few days ago, grrrr)
