Enable Registry Editor without using gpedit.msc

Registry Editor is a quite powerful tool and you can do heck a lot of things with it. You can configure Windows Settings, you can kill Viruses , you can detect Trojans , you can change USB Settings etc and etc. Because of that, most of the viruses try to block your access to this Tool.So that you can not get rid of viruses and malwares. In this post , I will tell you about How to re-enable your Registry Editor.

What’s with gpedit.msc?

It is another built-in tool that is available to Windows 7 , 8 and Windows 10 users. You can easily re-enable the Registry Editor using this tool but Windows 7 Home Basic users are not provided with that tool, So I won’t go this way.Let’s talk about alternate ways instead.

1) Using Command Prompt

Command Prompt is available to all users , no matter which version of Windows they are using.To enable the Registry Editor:

Open Notepad , Copy the given code and save it as enable.bat.Make sure you select the All Files option first.

NOTE : .bat extension is important , don’t miss it otherwise it won’t work.

Code :
reg add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System" /t
Reg_dword /v DisableRegistryTools /f /d 0
Now Right Click on that file enable.bat and click on Run as administrator.You are done

2) Using VB Scripting

It is kind of a similar method, just copy the below code in Notepad File and save it as enable.vbs .Run it and you are all done.

3) Using a Noob’s Way

If you are quite lazy to apply above two methods, then you may go this way. Here is a tool called Unhook something , you can download it and it will solve your problem.

So these were the 3 methods that can be used by anyone to re-enable the Registry Editor, regardless of the Windows Version you are using.
