    When I attempt to open my Registry Editor I get a message. "Registry Editing
    has been disabled by your administrator"
    How do I get it enabled?
    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Scroll to the bottom of this page and downlod Fix-exec.inf.

    Then, from your PC, select the file, right mouse, install.

    This will correct the Regedit issue.

    BUT, it was most likely caused by an active virus/trojan or Spyware.

    Update you virus defs and do a full scan.
    If nothing is found, get a second opinion

    And, download and run SpyBot
    Use it's update feature to get the latest set of definitions.
