Regedit is disabled

The problem:
Regedit is disabled preventing access to the windows registry (applies to Windows XP and Vista).

You see an error like “Regedit is disabled by the administrator”

The Cause:
Some nasty viruses and spyware disable access to the registry to make virus removal more difficult.

The Solution:
With a big thanks to Doug Knox.

This little utility will re-enable regedit.
