registry access

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.security_admin (More info?)

hi,
i have two user accounts in my xp-pro and one of them has administrator
previliges. Even with this admin privilege, i cannot open the registry editor
with 'regedit' command. the error message is "Registry editing has been
disabled by your administrator". i have cleared any spyware with Spybot, yet
the problem persists. I Hope for a solution.

    Hi

    In the menu at http://www.dougknox.com, select Security,
    Disable/Enable Registry Editing Tools.

    This small VB Script will remove this restriction. If the
    first time the script is run it says "Disabled", run it
    again to enable registry edits again.
