Registry editing — Disabled !!!

Registry editing — Disabled !!!


Hi,

Most of the configurations for MS-Windows are done through the registry. Even security policies are set through it, so accessing registry is disabled for security reasons.

To enable or disable the registry access restriction please go through the page…

ENABLING REGISTRY RESTRICTION:

To Open the registry, goto Start => Run => regedit

Expand the folders until you finally arrive at
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\System] key.

Create a new DWORD value & name it to ‘DisableRegistryTools‘. Set the value to ‘1’ to disable registry editing functions.

Remember 0=allow regedit & 1=disable regedit.

This can also be enabled on a user-by-user basis by putting the same value in the [HKEY_CURRENT_USER] hive.

You need the system restarted for the changes to take effect. Once this is done you wont be able to edit the registry no longer

——OR—–

Rather simple way of disabling/restricting the registry access:

Create a text file having the following contents in it.

—————————————————————————-
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies]
“DisableRegistryTools”=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\System]
“DisableRegistryTools”=dword:00000001
—————————————————————————-

To get it working follow the simple steps, BUT PLEASE DO’T MISUSE IT.

Create a text file having the following contents in it.

—————————————————————————-
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies]
“DisableRegistryTools”=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\System]
“DisableRegistryTools”=dword:00000000
—————————————————————————-

Rename/Save it to a *.reg file, say ‘enable.reg’

Double click on it to have your registry all to yourself….
