The following are the same for each permission listed:
Type - Allow
Inherited from - <not inherited>

Columns: Name - Permission - Apply to
Administrators - Full Control - This key and subkeys
Backup Operators - Special - This key only
(Special = Query Value, Enumerate Subkeys, Notify, Read Control (effectively = Read))
LOCAL SERVICE - Read - This key and subkeys

Check Contents
