In the Windows start menu under "Search program and files" type "regedit" this will locate the regedit program. Right click on the program name in the search list. The right click menu will open with one option being Run As Administrator(Refer to link above). After doing so the program will open. Click the File->Import from the top menu bar.

Note: Modifying the registry without understanding the impact it will have on your machine is risky. Do so at your own risk and understand that you may need to reinstall Windows if you fail to take the correct steps while in there.

As from what I can tell you may have missed a permission in Step 4 or not set one correct.
