I would try editing the registry key from a "system" regedit. It is easier
than having to modify security permissions on system settings and then
trying to remember what they were to begin with to change them back.
- Download psexec.exe from here:
- Extract psexec.exe
- Open a command prompt "as administrator" (right-click, click run as
- change to the location of psexec.exe
- Execute the following command
psexec -s -i regedit.exe
This will open a regedit running as system on your desktop, which should
have access rights to the registry.
