Edit Registry with standard user RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi i am using vbscript to disable regedit for standard user.

    The script is as below :--

     Set objShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")

    Set WSHNetwork = CreateObject("Wscript.Network")
    strComputer = WSHNetwork.ComputerName
    UserString = WSHNetwork.UserName
    DomainString = WSHNetwork.UserDomain

    isDomainAdmin = false

    Set UserObj = GetObject("WinNT://" & DomainString & "/" & UserString)

    For Each GroupObj In UserObj.Groups

    IF GroupObj.Name ="Domain Admins" THEN

    isDomainAdmin = true

    END IF


    If isDomainAdmin Then

        Wscript.Echo strUser & " Domain Admin."


        Wscript.Echo strUser & " Not A Domain Admin."

    reg.exe add "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 2 /f" 

    End If

    But i am unable to disable the regedit for standard user.

    what i am missing i do not know.

    please share your knowledge and help me so that standard user can not view or use the regedit program.
