In this post I am gonna show how to enable or disable Registry Editor. For this purpose I'm gonna use Group Policy Editor to recover Registry Editor. 

Registry Editor works as registry editing tool provided with each and every version of Windows operating system. It can be disabled, blocked or locked to prevent the regedit from being run or executed by users in order to protect important system registry. A virus can also disable Registry Editor.

Registry Editor can be opened from Run by typing regedit. If it is disabled then you will see the following error message: 

Don't worry if you lose control over Registry Editor. Because if you can follow some easy steps then you'll be able to recover it. Lets try it: 
  1. First of all you should open Run by pressing Start + R
  2. Then type gpedit.msc and hit enter.
  3. Now you'll see Group Policy Editor Window.
  4. Locate Administrative Template under User Configuration.
  5. Now double click on System and then click twice again on Prevent access to registry editing tools.
  6. Now a new windows will open and you should select disable and then hit on OK button.
  7. Now you're almost done! Restart your PC and then type regedit in the run to open registry editor. 
Note: If you wanna disable Registry Editor intentionally then follow the same procedure. All you need to do is just select enable instead of disable in the step 6.
