I can not edit my account information.

Hi there, I would like to clarify If you are the administrator on the computer your trying to edit your account

If you are the administrator of the computer, and If your computer is part of a network at an organization such as a school, government agency, or a business, your organization's system administrator might have disabled or even removed certain settings by using Group Policy. Group Policy is a feature of Windows that lets system administrators manage users' access to Windows features. If you suspect that Group Policy is preventing you from changing a setting that you need to access, contact your system administrator.


If your computer is not part of a network, a user with administrator privileges might have modified Group Policy on your computer to remove access to the settings. In this case, contact the users who are administrators on your computer to modify the settings you'd like to change.

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.

    • Select User Configuration
    • Select Administrative Templates
    • Select System
    • Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
    • Select Remove Task Manager
    • Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

For IE what you should do is update to the newest version of Internet Explorer or do what I do and Use Mozilla Firefox.
