    It's no trouble at all.

    It appears that you have, but I'm not sure what could be blocking it for you.

    Temporarily disable Windows Defender. I just found this thread and had the exact same problem. The reg only partially merged. Reading through this thread and then I read this bit:

    User Account Control (UAC) - Change Settings in Windows 8

    Nar, Windows Defender wouldn't cause an issue.
    And it reminded me Windows Defender in windows 8 is VERY touchy about what it allows you to change if you have your UAC setup any higher than... Well off... Anyway, I disabled windows defender real time protection under settings, doubled clicked the reg, hit yes to all the prompts, and it worked instead of a broken context menu.

    Just remember to turn real time back on when you are done.

    Brink thanks for this reg file and the command line active scan. Not pretty but it gets the job done for now. Excellent work.

    You are most welcome. I actually made an account just so others wouldn't have the same issue.

    Hello Laquox, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    Thank you for posting.

    Odd. I have real time protection turned on for Windows Defender and have UAC set to top level, and I have no issue with the .reg file merging like this on any of my installations. I just don't see what you guys would.
