    Download
    RegOwnershipEx
     
    In the 'Select the Registry Key' text box of RegOwnershipEx, copy and paste the following:
     
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\AppID\{CDCBCFCA-3CDC-436f-A4E2-0E02075250C2}
    3.  Click the Take Ownership button. You will see the Lock icon getting unlocked. Now click 'Open in Registry Editor'.
     
     
    Registry Editor showing the key that prevents Explorer from running as admin
     
    4.  Registry Editor will open at the above key. In the right pane of Registry Editor, you will see a value named 'RunAs'. You need to simply rename this value or delete it so Windows allows you to run Explorer as administrator when you need it. Rename 'RunAs' to anything. For example, RunAsAdmin (so you remember you made this change).
     
    5.  Close Registry Editor and now switch back to RegOwnershipEx. Click the 'Restore Ownership' button, tick the key that you just took ownership of and restore its ownership.

    Try renaming the extension from .midi to .mid, that might do the trick.
