Error Writing the values New contents in Registry - How to Fix on Windows [Tutorial]

When we create or alter registry keys we will be sometimes faced with an error "Cannot edit (the

name of the registry key) : Error Writing the value's new contents. Though this issue can be rectified

sometimes with running Registry editor as Administrator,it won't work every time,as Windows Will

automatically restrict us when it knows we are changing its key components.

We can still gain the permissions by using the following method..

Just follow the steps..

1) Press Windows + R Keys

2) Type Regedit

3) Hit Enter.
