Firstly, my sincere apology for being late in reverting back to you. Many thanks for your suggestion.The vbs file mentioned by you worked wonder & registry edit now enabled. In this connection I would like to share my recent experience from my office PC(XP-pro-sp3) which showed similar registry problem. AMC agent rectified the problem with another type of tricks as below
"REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"
-When registry editor is disabled &
"REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"
-when task manager is disabled
They rectified the registry problem by a novel means i.e. copying & pasting the quoted portion(without quotes) on Run command & clicked O.K.
Can you pl. throw some light about this procedure?
However, two problems they could not solve- enabling viewing hidden files & folders including system files & unhide extentions of known file types.
Can u pl. guide on these issues so that I can enrich my knowledge further.
Thanks & regards,
