Unable to run MMC in author mode on Windows 7

A strange error preventing me from opening the management console (MMC) started appearing recently. This is probably a result of some Windows Update.

"You cannot open Microsoft Management Console in author mode because of current computer policies."

There was nothing set in the policies, though, that is visible from GPEdit. Fortunately, the solution is simple: set the registry key

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\software\policies\Microsoft\MMC\RestrictAuthorMode to 0.
