Windows error messages

"Operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer"

start >run>regedit
go to: REGEDIT - registry editor
When in registry editor: HKEY_CURRENT_USER – right click for permissions
Advanced Security Settings under 1st tab permissions
You will probably get this error message, "You can't remove restricted because this object is inheriting permissions from its parent.
To remove restricted, you must prevent this object from inheriting permissions. Turn off the option for inheriting permissions, and then try removing RESTRICTED again.
· Unclick: include inheritable permissions from this object’s parent
· Windows security warning: options to add/ remove/ cancel
· Click Remove inherited parent permissions
Denied all access
Continue – delete restricted
Once removed,
Follow this path in registry editor:
HKEY_CURRENT_USERS\software\classes\.html
Right click (Default)
Change value data from (in my case Chrome – it could be Firefox as well):
From: ChromeHTML To: htmlfile
From: FirefoxHTML To: htmlfile
Repeat steps for .htm, .shtml, .xht if they exist
RESTART COMPUTER

wat does regedit means


regedit is an an inbuilt Microsoft Registry Editor. To start the regedit.exe go to Start>>>Run>>> type regedit and click OK. The Microsoft Registry Editor (regedit.exe) enables you to view, search for, and change settings in your system registry, which contains information about how your computer runs. Although you can use Registry Editor to inspect and modify the registry, doing so is not recommended, because making any incorrect changes can damage your operating system. Please go to http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Registry for more details.
