Windows 7: Cannot delete certain Registry Key; Cannot change Owner of Registry Ke

Cannot delete certain Registry Key; Cannot change Owner of Registry Ke

In order to get rid of the *.zip folder view in WinExplorer on a64bit Windows 7 system I tried to delete (according to some tutorials) the Registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Classes\CLSID\{E88DCCE0-B7B3-11d1-A9F0-00AA0060FA31}

Unfortuantely this is NOT possible immediately.
When I try to delete it then I got a popup

Cannot delete.... Error while delting key.

Ok, so I tried to get ownership of this key by right clicking-->Permissions
then selecting "Users" and enabling "Full control" the "apply" button but I got here:

Unable to save permission changes on ....
Access denied"

Why?

This last error comes for all Owners: SYSTEM, Administrators, trusted Installers.

I have Admin rights. So what more do I need to get ownership?

Even worse: Every change in owner is rejected as well.

Hello Peter,

Are you logged in as an administrator?

In addition, you might see if the tutorial below may help with this.
