EnableRegistryTools - Enable or disable the RegEdit utility

' Enable/Disable the Registry editor (RegEdit.exe)
' NOTE: this routine requires the SetRegistryValue,
'  DeleteRegistryValue and CheckRegistryValue routines,
' that you can find in the CodeBank under the Windows section.
' Example:
'   ' disable Regedit
'   EnableRegistryTools False
'   ' enable it again
'   EnableRegistryTools

Public Sub EnableRegistryTools(Optional ByVal bEnable As Boolean = True)
    Dim sKey As String
    Const HKEY_CURRENT_USER = &H80000001

    sKey = "Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System"
    If bEnable Then
        ' delete the value whose setting disables the registry
        DeleteRegistryValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, sKey, "DisableRegistryTools"
        ' if the Key doesn not exist
        If CheckRegistryKey(HKEY_CURRENT_USER, sKey) = False Then
            ' create the key
            CreateRegistryKey HKEY_CURRENT_USER, sKey
        End If
        ' create and set the value to disable the Registry
        SetRegistryValue HKEY_CURRENT_USER, sKey, "DisableRegistryTools", 1
    End If
End Sub
