Registry Editing Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator

Like Tweet Pin it Share Share Email

Today a friend of mine asked that his registry editor had been disabled accidentally and now how should he enable it back again. Here are three ways to enable the registry editing in Windows.If Windows Registry Editor has been disabled, it shows the following error message:

“Registry Editing Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator”

Registery Editing Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator

1- From Group Policy Editor

Go to Run –> gpedit.msc
In the left hand menu, go to User Config –> Administrative Templated –> System.
Now In the right hand pane, select “Prevent access to registry editing tools”. It will probably be not configured or enabled. If it’s enabled, disable it and if it’s not configured, first enable it, apply settings and then disable it. Most probably the settings have been applied instantly. If not, then run gpupdate in command prompt to apply the group policies.

2- From the Run Menu

I got this tweak while surfing the internet. Go to Start –> Run, copy and paste the follow in the Run box and press OK.

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

The effects are usually instant. If not then you should see the results after restarting your computer.

3- Using Smart Virus Remover

If none of the above methods work, please download our Smart Virus Remover from here:

Using this Virus Remover please restore your Windows settings and your registry editor will be re-enabled.
