I want to edit the registry but Windows gives an error when I start regedit.exe as a standard user or administrator.

Hopefully this isn't an installation error or some new feature?

What is the error it is giving you? I can get into regedit on all my Win8 boxes. – Jared Tritsch Oct 8 '12 at 19:30
I will tell you later. I need to reboot and check again with process.exe but when I click the .exe it gives not much. – Betterdev Oct 8 '12 at 19:35

Verify the integrity of your regedit.exe file. Consider copying regedit.exe from a known working Windows 8 computer.
