Sitecore xConnect - access to the registry key Global is denied

After checking my xConnect logs to ensure all was running smoothly the following error was present:
[Error] Access to the registry key 'Global' is denied.
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the registry key 'Global' is denied.
The fix for this error is to simply add the identity of the application pool that the xConnect site uses to the local group: Performance Monitor Users.

Performance Monitor Users group
In my case this user was IIS AppPool\sc9test_.xconnect - with the part following IIS AppPool being the name of the application pool.
