How to enable registry-editor in windows 8


Go to Search, and type in gpedit.msc, and press enter.
In Group Policy Editor, select User Configuration. Then select Administrative Templates, then select System. Then double click on "Prevent access to registry editing tools". A pop-up window will come up with two tabs, select "Settings" tab. Click on the radio button that says "Disable" and click on OK button. It sounds stupid, but you will be "disabling the prevention of access to the registry editor." If Registry Editor is not immediately available, you may have to restart to computer. Good luck!

How to Solve " Registry Editing has been disabled by your Administrator"


Methods to Remove the Registry Editing Restriction
Method 1 :- Using REG.EXE Console Tool

  • Click Start, Run and type this command
REG add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
You should be able to launch Tweak UI, as well as the Registry Editor.
Method 2 :- Using the Group Policy Editor (Windows XP Only)
  • Click Start, Run and type gpedit.msc and press Enter
  • Goto the following location User Configuration | Administrative Templates | System
  • Double-click Disable Registry editing tools and set it to Not Configured
  • Exit the Group Policy Editor
Note:- If the setting already reads Not Configured, set it to Enabled and click Apply . Then revert it back to Not Configured. This ensures that the DisableRegistryTools registry value is removed successfully.

Enable the Registry Editor, Task Manager and Folder Options Disabled by Viru


Virus attack is common these days and we often come across the problems like Disabled Folder Options or like Task Manager and Regedit disabled by Administrator. These problems are nothing but virus activities. The virus has infected our system and stopping us from accessing these options.
23f407e.jpg
Pressing keys Ctrl+Alt+Del opens up a dialog saying that “Task Manager has been disabled by your Administrator” whereas you are the Administrator yourself. It becomes very annoying when you think that you can fix this problem by going into the Registry Editor but it doesn’t show up. Even the Folder Options gets disabled.
This problem is generally caused by a virus named “Brontok” but don’t worry just use RRT (Remove Restrictions Tool) that can easily solve this problem. RRT is free and can successfully enable:
1. Folder Options
2. Regedit (Registry Editor)
3. Task Manager
4. Show Hidden Files option
The tool will come more useful if you use it in Safe Mode.
Download RRT

Normally when this message appears a yellow bar at the top of the browser is also present. In IE you just need to click on it and chose the option that says "allow pop-ups". In Firefox there should be an "Allow" button at the right hand side of the yellow bar.

Iam unable to view instant messagas from my yahoo messenger.


1. Exit Yahoo! Messenger by right-clicking the tray icon and selecting Exit.
2. Before you edit the registry, you are advised to make a backup:
a. On your keyboard, hold down the Windows key and press the R key. This opens the "Run" command.
b. Type regedit and click OK. This opens the "Registry Editor."
c. On the "File" menu, click Export.
d. In the "Export range" panel, click All, then save your registry as Backup.
3. In the "Registry Editor," browse down to following location in the registry:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\
4. You should only see a list of numbers under Zones. If you see an unrecognizable character before zone 0, delete that particular key.
5. Close the Registry Editor.
6. Open up Yahoo! Messenger and try to send messages again.

Cannot enable sytems restore. Message: Group


1. Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe and press Enter

2. Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore

In the right-pane:

* Delete the value DisableConfig
* Delete the value DisableSR

3. Exit the Registry Editor.

In Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.

1. Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC

2. Navigate to this path:

-> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
---> System
----> System Restore

3. Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured

4. Set Turn off Configuration to Not Configured
More Information

Turn off System Restore corresponds to DisableSR registry value. With this Policy is turned ON, the System Restore tab may be missing in My Computer Properties. Also, when you run System Restore (rstrui.exe), you receive this message:

System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your domain Administrator.

Turn off Configuration corresponds to DisableConfig registry value. With this Policy turned ON, the System Restore tab will remain displayed but the user cannot configure the SR options. It reads disabled by Group Policy.
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/srpolicy.htm


Or perhaps you can review this
Control of System Restore function has been disabled by "Group Policy".
How do regain control?Go to Start>Run, key in gpedit.msc and hit ENTER. Under Computer
Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, then click on
the System Restore folder. In the right-hand pane, double-click on Turn off
Configuration and, under the Setting tab, click in the radio button beside
Not Configured. Click on Apply then OK.

Please visit the following Microsoft Knowledge Base website
and review the topic titled: "Method 1: Use Group Policy".

How to Disable the System Restore Configuration User Interface
http://support.microsoft.com/default.asp…

Note: You must be an administrator or owner, or have administrative
privileges to perform this task.

Undo the changes using Group Policy Editor (Gpedit.msc)

-or-

Open Registry Editor and navigate to:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Wind… NT\SystemRestore

In the right-pane, delete the value "DisableConfig".
Close Registry Editor
Close and re-open the System Restore properties page.


Note: Group Policy Editor is only Available in XP Professional (according to http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-…

Perhaps one of these links will give you the correct solution

Re.Launching Registry editor,To Cure CD-DVD-writer not Responding


Are you the Administrator, and do you have the Administrator's password?

If so, then log in as Administrator and make the necesary changes.

However, if not, then you must reinstall the OS, to establish yourself as such.

How to enable registry editing


Method 1 - Using Group Policy Editor If you are using an edition of Windows Vista (Windows Vista Business, Enterprise and Ultimate editions) which includes the Group Policy Editor, follow these steps:
  • Click Start, type gpedit.msc in the Search box, and press ENTER
  • Go to the following branch:
User Configuration | Administrative Templates | System
  • Double-click Prevent access to registry editing tools
  • Set it as Not Configured
Important: If it's already set to Not Configured, set it to Enabled and click Apply. Then repeat the steps and revert the setting back to Not Configured. This removes the registry based policy if set already.
Method 2 This method should work in all editions of Windows Vista.
  • Download reg_enable.vbs attached at the end of this article, and save it to Desktop
  • Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
  • Switch to your Desktop directory by typing the following command, and then pressing ENTER:
cd /d %userprofile%\desktop
  • Then, type the following command and press ENTER
wscript.exe reg_enable.vbs
  • Type EXIT to close the Command Prompt window.
If everything worked fine, the DisableRegistryTools policy should have been removed by now. See if you're able to launch Regedit.exe now.
