Today a friend of mine asked that his registry editor had been disabled accidently and now how should he enable it back again. Here are two ways to enable the registry editing in Windows.
1- From Group Policy Editor
Go to Run –> gpedit.mscIn the left hand menu, go to User Config –> Administrative Templated –> System.Now In the right hand pane, select “Prevent access to registry editing tools”. It will probably be not configured or enabled. If it’s enabled, disable it and if it’s not configured, first enable it, apply settings and then disable it. Most probably the settings have been applied instantly. If not, then run gpupdate in command prompt to apply the group policies.
2- From the Run Menu
I got this tweak while surfing the internet. Go to Start –> Run, copy and paste the follow in the Run box and press OK.
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
The effects are usually instant. If not then you should see the results after restarting your computer.
Please tell us your experiences on this tweak.

A few days back, a client came to me and told me that he was having trouble with his Windows XP. The show hidden files and folders was not working at all. If he selected the radio button “Show hidden files and folders”, and then press Ok .. the changes would just disappear upon opening the dialog again. It was probably some virus attack after which the Windows registry was not being updated properly. So here is what I did to restore it back.
Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box.Go to this key:HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\AdvancedIn the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1.
Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect. Mine have already been fixed :-). Please spare a few moments from your precious time and tell us about your experiences

How does the Ravmon Virus affects your PC?
When you Open any drive in My Computer by right clicking, the Context menu will have a chinese like language & when you click on this language on context menu, the drive will not open but the Open With dialouge will ask you to “Choose the program you want to use to open this file:”. Also by double clicking any drive same thing happens.
Context Menu and OpenWith Dialogue will look like this.
The Ravmon virus does also corrupt your Folder Options. So when you open Folder Options and try to check “Show hidden files and folders” and click ok. My Computer will not show hidden files, also “Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)” option will not be working.

How Does the Ravmon Virus Spread?
Ravmon Virus mostly spreads from USB Flash drives. So to prevent this virus from breaking into your pc you must start an Anti-Virus before plugining a Flash drive into your pc.
For Removing Ravmon virus and its effects I have created a tool. Just download it, run it and Restart your computer.
