    Hello Brink,

    Do you know if there are any possible issues if we leave "Administrators" group as owners of those registry keys?
    and also to leave them have "Full control" on keys.

    After successfully applying reg key, I will set permissions back to what it was before, but I'm wondering whether that's necessary and if so why?
    Hello zebal,

    Leaving "Administrators" as the owner wouldn't hurt anything, and will allow you to continue using the .reg files in the tutorial to make changes if wanted.

    It's also fine to change the owner back to "TrustedInstaller" to prevent any changes to the key by mistake.

    Thank you for confirmation!

    btw, if anyone want's to revert owner back to original value you should type:
    NT SERVICE\TrustedInstaller

    Just "TrustedInstaller" won't be found.

    I wrote a PowerShell script that makes this process easier.

    Hope this helps.

    I've followed the tutorial and downloaded the REG file, and unblocked it. Clicking YES when asked if I wish to add it, I get this error message.

    I am the only account holder on the PC and am Administrator. PowerShell is not open. Am I missing something?
    @Brink, Hello Shawn,

    I get the same error with 2004

    The admin version worked fine

    Hello Steve,

    Correct. Steps 3 and 4 must be done to gain ownership and permission of the registry key first before the REG file can be successfully merged.
