Registery Editing

I am having problems with Registery Editing. A few months back I never had this problem. Now I am having this. I have tried to change it from:
Start > Run > gpedit.msc > Adminstrative Templates > All Settings > Prevent access to registery editing tools.

It did not work. Please Help !
