How can you disable it? How, through the Registry, of course! You'll need to be in the admin account, or yours must have admin privileges.

In regedit, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Applets\Regedit and look for the value LastKey. Double-click it and clear the string. Then right-click the Regedit key (in the lefthand pane) and select Permissions. Set Permissions to Deny for any/all users/groups.

    This kills your ability to bookmark Registry Editor. It will bookmark at first but, when you reopen bookmark it will be gone.

    No 'any/all users/groups' are listed in permissions (i have disabled fast user switching and don't have any user accounts)and clearing the string didn't work, thanks for trying. would deleting the key work?
