Try doing it while in Safe Mode (dunno whether it'll work, but it's worth a try!)

I think we need to change permissions on the relevant keys.


Open Regedit
Navigate to the

HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ShellServiceObjects

key

Right-click on it to highlight it and select Permissions

Click on the Advanced button

In the Permissions tab, there should be four entries
Users, Administrators, SYSTEM, and CREATOR OWNER
All should be inheriting their permissions from 'MACHINE\SOFTWARE'
The permissions should be
Users - Read - This key and subkeys
Administrators - Full Control - This key and subkeys
SYSTEM - Full Control - This key and subkeys
CREATOR OWNER - Special (full control on subkeys only)


Once they are set properly, try the merge again after exiting Regedit
