I'm running this .reg for a Power User:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies]

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
"NoDriveTypeAutoRun"=dword:00000091
"NoFind"=dword:00000001
"NoRun"=dword:00000001
"NoControlPanel"=dword:00000001
"NoRecentDocsHistory"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\NonEnum]
"{20D04FE0-3AEA-1069-A2D8-08002B30309D}"=dword:00000001

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WinOldApp]
"Disable"=dword:00000001

This disables some Windows featuresfor the current user. but, unfortunately, this .reg was executed for the Administrator and all the windows were closed. Now, i need to restore the original Administrator configurations, but i can't access the registry editor to delete the unwanted keys.

Can anybody help me?

Thanks.
