Hi,

To resolve this issue, disable UAC. Click the Start button, select Control Panel > User Accounts > Change User Account  Control settings, and move the slider down to the lowest level. You must restart your machine for this change to take effect.

Regards,
Arjun

Is this domain-joined computer and do you use administrator account?
Is remote registry service enabled on remote computer and firewall configured properly?

It it's workgroup - the account you use on your local computer must have the same login and password as the one on the remote computer.
