Well, windows sucks on that department. The process is a bit buggy and shows you WAY too many warning and unnecessary windows. So this is what you need to do. After locating said registry key, i'd advise you to export it (it's a backup).
Then try to delete it's contents. You've noticed you can't, it says permission denied. So you right click on the denied folder and chose permissions.
You'll notice it's all blank. Press Advanced on the bottom and you'll notice on the next windows, up there where it says Proprietary, it says you're not the proprietary. But there's a placeholder link that does allow you to change who is. Click it and type in (search if you need) your current windows username (assuming your username is an admin on that machine). Accept everything util you reach the first window you got when you chose "permissions". Instead of pressing "Advanced" you pick "Add" and add your username again, give yourself "Total control" on the tick boxes below and press OK. You'll be back at the registry keys. The process to pick up the new permissions is a bit buggy. You'll need to refresh them now and you won't be denied access to the contents of the key you've just altered but you'll find out another key where you need to repeat the whole deal again. Think this'll happen 3 or 4 times. When all's done you will have no trouble deleting everything.
Now, this is the part i managed to do. My control panel part, is no where like what was stated in the OP (maybe because i'm using win8.1). I'm still figuring that one out. Removing the reg key, seems to have had no effect whatsoever in connecting my device to the computer, everything still works albeit through MTP.
Oh yea, i never had an issue with MTP not working. I just want to remove it because it's a limitative uneeded piece of crap. Slow transfer speeds and blocked access to my stuff during an operation (copying stuff) is just retarded.
