The pasted REGEDIT file shows how to regain control control of NAVCE. Of course,
you will need local admin to edit the relevant registry locations. I can't say
for certain that your version of NAVCE will use _exactly_ the same registry
keys, but with this as a hint, it shouldn't take more than 5 minutes for anyone
comfortable with registry editing to unlock NAVCE.
