screensaver tab missing; unable to run regedit

    My screensaver tab is missing from control panel display. I found the fix
    pasted below, and the data value is indeed "1", but when I change it to zero,
    I get the following error message:
    "Cannot edit NoDispScrSavPg: Error writing the new value's contents."
    Can anyone help restore my screensaver tab?

    The fix I tried:

    Start > Run > Regedit

    After navigating to the DWord select Edit/Permissions and see what
    authorisation you have to change the key.

    Give yourself write access ( you may need to be logged in as an
    administrator)

    Then change the value and change the permissions back.
