I am getting an error message when I try to delete a registry key in Windows 20012 R2.

I have a server that I am hosting in Azure.  There is a registry key that I am trying to remove.  I have attached a screenshot of the message that I am getting.  I have disabled all services associated with this key and I still get the message.

The article below has more detail in regards to what I am trying to accomplish:

I had setup a Remote Desktop server which exceeded the license grace period.  I have added valid licenses to the server.  It appears this registry key needs to be removed.

Any input would be greatly appreciated.
