Windows 10 Pro x64

The reg file doesn't work in my case. I can still disable Aero Peek in Visual Effects. I checked the registry key in regedit and it's there. Can anyone please tell me what's going on? Of course I restarted the computer after applying the reg file, also this is a fresh Windows 7 fully updated to date.

The best way would be to uncheck the box in Option 3 and apply.
