“RestrictRun”=dword:00000000

6. when you go to the next, (before you logoff/on)..You have to create a subkey named RestrictRun inside the
Explorer subkey. Then you create your values and value data under the RestrictRun subkey.
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
“1?=”setup.exe”
“2?=”regedit.exe”

Make beyond any doubt to include “regedit.exe” being as how the RestrictRun tweak likewise debilitated the combine function for .reg files and other file functions… for example .inf, .bat, .com etc… files.
Provided that you don’t include regedit.exe then you should not have the capacity to gain access to the registry to alter this setting again!
