Fix for MMC could not create snap-in for Group Policy Object editor

without comments

If when you run gpedit.msc you just get the following error

MMC could not create snap-in because of the current user policies.
Name: Group Policy Object editor
CLSID :{8FC0B734-A0E1-11D1-A7D3-0000F87571E3}

The one reason is that the Group Policy Object editor has been restricted for the current user. You can check and possibly change this with the registry entry:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\MMC\{8FC0B734-A0E1-11D1-A7D3-0000F87571E3}]
Restrict_Run=1

If the value of Restrict_Run is 1 then you will get the error, if you have enough permissions simply setting it to 0 will allow you to run the Group Policy Object Editor without any further issues.
