MSCONFIG: Access Denied

If you are receiving this error message: An Access Denied error was returned while attempting to change a service, You may need to log on using an administrator account to make specific changes,” you will want to do this:

1.  Go to regedit via start..run…regedit

2.  Export registry to make a backup (in case something goes wrong!!)

3.  Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/Pml Driver HPZ12/Start

4.  Right click and select modify

5.  Change value to 4 for disabled (or 3 for manual…I did 4)

6.  Restart computer
