    Cannot rename/delete a registry entry.


    I cannot rename/delete this registry entry: {43886CD5-6529-41c4-A707-7B3C92C05E68}. I took all ownership and gave all the privilegies but still cannot do so. How really can I change it?

    Hello Anixx,

    What is the full path of this key in the registry?

    In addition, please go ahead and also post screenshots showing your ownership and permission settings of this key to see if anything may stand out.

    I already have found the reason why I could not: it was due to a subkey. Now the issue is resolved.
