Visual Basic Script to Enable/ Disable Registry Editor
Doug Knox has created a VBS Script which allows users  to easily enable and disable Registry Editor. Just download regedit tools.vbs and double click on it. This script reverses the current state of Registry Editor. If registry editing is set to enabled, this script will disable it and if it is disabled, it will enable it.
 If the above link does not work, copy the code given below in Notepad and save the file as *.vbs or Registry Editor.vbs.
Option Explicit: ENABLE REGISTRY EDITING
Dim WSHShell, n, MyBox, p, t, mustboot, errnum, vers
Dim enab, disab, jobfunc, itemtype
Set WSHShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
p = “HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\”
p = p & “DisableRegistryTools”
itemtype = “REG_DWORD”
mustboot = “Log off and back on, or restart your pc to” & vbCR & “effect the changes”
enab = “ENABLED”
disab = “DISABLED”
jobfunc = “Registry Editing Tools are now “
t = “Confirmation”
Err.Clear
On Error Resume Next
n = WSHShell.RegRead (p)
On Error Goto 0
errnum = Err.Number
if errnum <> 0 then
 WSHShell.RegWrite p, 0, itemtype
End If
If n = 0 Then
