Specs: xp Pro, P1v/256

In xp's administrator account when i run "regedit", it says something similar to " registry editing is disabled by your administrator". I cannot remember if I diabled registry editing or not .
Could anyone tell me how to enable registry editing.
thanks a lot

kpsu, Are you sure that you clicked on "Enable Registry Editing Tools" and NOT Disable then downloaded that reg file. It should work for Windows XP.

I followed instructions as follows

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Using the Group Policy Editor - For Windows XP Professional

DisableRegistryTools value corresponds to the Disable registry editing tools Group Policy

User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System

Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC to launch the Group Policy Editor, and set the policy to Not Configured
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
There is no "DisableRegistryTools" in
User Configuration\administrative templates\system

any help
thanks
