This issue may occur if you do not have sufficient permissions to modify sections of the registry.

Locate the registry key, right click and set permissions for 'everyone' to full control.

I have run as administrator role arleady. Do I need to do this ?

Check the permissions of the \system\ key.

You should check your system on malware or viruses. The Chinese characters should not be there.

Run a scan with MalwareBytes or something like that.

Fully scan my workstation and it seems fine.
