    I cannot do this. Getting ‘Access Denied’ when trying to change registry permissions and in the DCOM window everything is greyed out, I cannot make changes. I’m guessing this is because I login with a Hotmail account and not a local Admin account. Would this be correct? Do I need to create a local Admin account to apply this fix? Thank you.

  2. ^^ You need to take ownership of keys mentioned in step 3 & 4.

    Thank you. After taking ownership do I need to put back the original Owner? It was originally set to “Trusted Installer”.
