When you log in to your computer with Windows operating system administrator privileges, the system assumes that you have the right to run and install non-malicious data files and software. However, when trying to run regedit, it displays an error message saying the administrator has disabled registry editing. It is due to a virus or malware trying to gain control of your administrative rights. To get back in the driver's seat, enable the group policy editor that solves the Viral software code disabled in Registry Access problem. Lots of malicious programs will interrupt the registry permit, depending on its primary file name (regedit.exe) and do not allow them to run. Operating system administrative rights can be targeted by malware.
