The 'access denied' error message that shows up in the settings dialog
tells you that you have no write access to the registry under
HKCU\Software. There are some 'security' apps that prevent writing
there, which is actually not just stupid but breaks most apps: the
HKCU\Software part of the registry is supposed to be writable because
that's where apps are allowed to store their settings.

Get rid of that "security" app (the quotes are intentional here) and
configure the registry to give write access to apps under HKCU\Software.
