  • Go to Run and type gpedit.msc
  • Click on administrative template > double click on system > double click Prevent access
  • To registry editing tools, click Not configure or disable.
  • Then Apply then click OK.

Thank you

hey friend, yours was THE most helpful link ive found in my hours of surfing; everything you said helped me right up until the point where you end at "Press Ok"...

because nothing happened. Should I restart my computer now, or was it supposed to just start working? My brain is fried so I need micromanagement.
nayru u r the best thanks alot dude every thing I tried failed but ur way to open registery worked now I deleted virus from registery
says "application not found" when I type it into task manager..
I got as far as system... and I can't find Prevent Access to Registry Editing Tools anywhere in the system section. In fact, there is nothing about the registry there. What do I do now? D:
i cant open the "gpedit.msc" also I think I have a virus in my computer
so I cant open the "regedit" and the "folder option"
