 7 Ways to Fix ”Registry editing has been disabled by Your administrator “

Whenever  your Computer is infected with Virus ,Registry Editor is the one which is going to be disabled. I already posted an article on how to access to disabled registry editor.But I am not satisfied as if the threat level of Virus is high,these two methods will not suffice to fix access to registry problem.

So here I am giving all possible ways you can get access to registry editor including two methods mentioned in  that post.

1.Access Registry editor with Symantec’s Tool:When your computer is infected with virus ,these viruses makes changes in shell/command/open keys in registry  such a way that Whenever you try to open registry editor these viruses will run .Hence they prevent access to registry by showing “registry editor has been disabled by  your administrator”.

Fix:download UnHookexec.inf developed by Symantec and install .

2.Access Registry Editor with VB script file:Download VB script file from doug Knox Website who is Microsoft’s MVP and run it .If you get any warning click ok to continue.After VB Script file enables registry editor ,restart your computer and access registry.

3.Access Registry With Registry Fix Tool: Download Registry Fix  Tool ,run it click Fix Registry to get access to registry.

 7 Ways to Fix ”Registry editing has been disabled by Your administrator “

4.Access Registry with RRT:Download RRT and run it select RRT personal edition and fix registry editor problem.

5.Access Registry with Disk heal:Download Disk Heal and in Fix tab click Fix  opposite to Registry Editor Inaccessibility  .

6.Access Registry with Group Policy Editor:

Start>Run>type gpedit.msc

Select User Configuration >Administrative Templates>System

in the right pane select Prevent access to registry editing Tools and set it to Not configured or Disabled.

 7 Ways to Fix ”Registry editing has been disabled by Your administrator “

7.Access registry with renaming regedit file  :Since Virus are not human beings they predict that registry editor file is regedit.exe ,so renaming  regedit.exe to edit_reg .exe and see you can access the registry ,this may not work but worth a try :).

So any other ways If I found to access the registry ,I will update this post for sure.

What I can do?

What you can do is bookmark this post and also download tools I mentioned in a USB drive which will be helpful if you encounter problems accessing the registry .I listed all possible ways you can access the registry  when gets disabled by a virus or by the administrator in your office.any one method I mentioned will solve your problem.

Have you faced problem in accessing registry ?how you solved it? share with us in comments.

The threat level of virus in your computer very high, so the fixes not worked scan your computer with updated antivirus and then uses these methods to enable registry editor.

It's not fair to depend only these fixed to enable registry editor, you first need to get rid of viruses in your computer. Then try these fixes to enable registry editor.What anti-virus you are using in your computer. Update it and run scan agian.

Hello
Thank you for your list of 7 ways to fix the Registry Editing Has Been Disabled.
Solutions 1 & 2 didn’t work, but the third solution worked perfectly.
Many thanks for making this available. I’m a 67 years “old fogie” and I totally depend on guys like yourself who are willing to help others, like me, who have no technical knowledge or abilities.
Once again, many thanks for your help.

very simple solution is Re-Enable V2, see http://www.tangosoft.co.uk
I understand version 3 is currently being worked on too.
