Visual Studio 2017 Problem

When clicking on Tools → Extensions and Updates, if the following dialog pops up:

Dialog text:

Access to the registry key 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_d3dc1757\ApplicationPrivateSettings\Microsoft\Extensions' is denied
Then delete the folder `%LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\15.0_<random-string>`, (or rename it), and then restart Visual Studio. This folder will be created again and the "Extensions and Updates" dialog will now load without a problem.
