    Basically, this error occurs if you have the registry editing restrictions or policies enabled. If DisableRegistryTools is set to 1 in the registry or via Group Policy Editor, TweakUI also does not start. Tweak UI checks for the existence of DisableRegistryTools policy at startup. The protocol was well followed by the programmer there, as Tweak UI also modifies the registry.
    To Fix:

    If your system is in a Network, you may need to contact the Network Administrator to relax this restriction (if needed). For standalone PCs, try the following and remove the registry editing restrictions:
    1. Click Start, Run and type this command exactly as given below: (better - Copy and paste)

    REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Now, you should be able to launch TweakUI, as well as the Registry Editor.

    Using the Group Policy Editor - For Windows XP Professional


    DisableRegistryTools value corresponds to the Disable registry editing tools Group Policy
    User Configuration \ Administrative Templates \ System
    Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC to launch the Group Policy Editor, and set the policy to Not Configured
