Editing HKEY_USERS using a .REG file

I am trying to use a .REG file to change the NoFileAssociate setting in HKEY_USERS, but it keeps giving me a error. The .REG file runs without any errors when I use HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE but, it does not accomplish what I need.

Below is my code for HKEY_USERS -

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

Here is the error -
Cannot import fix.reg. Error accessing the registry

It may be that it looks like you are missing the period before Default...

Like so...

This error usually means that the entries in the .reg file are not in the correct format.  If you're not sure about the format, you could pull up a registry entry and save it to file, then copy the format from that .reg file.
