Would a program made in vb.net that edits the registry need to be run as an adminsitrator or would a standard account be ok?
Yes it would, but you shouldn't use the registry these days.
Use an ini file or xml file in %APPADATA%/yourapp so your app won't need to elevate to administrator
thats if you're trying to save to registry that is, if you just want to edit keys, yes you will have to elevate.
