The user policies prevent MMC from creating the snap-in

I am sure you have a second PC where you can start regedit. If you have network connection to the other just make the changes remotely by making a remote connection via regedit (located in the "file" menu).
Other merhods to reset the necessary registry keys mentioned in the linked article:
- use the command reg.exe /add
- make a small vbscript
(those can be performed directly on the affected PC)
If you really have disabled regedit on all machines use the other method I mentioned: reg.exe
This is an OS integrated commandline tool to modify registry. Hopefully you have not disabled this one ;-)
Run "reg add /?" to see how it works.
Then follow the link
and add the appropriate registry value.
Then you should be able to start GPedit again...
