Re: clean a virus from regedit
Because you have not posted to let me know what Virus you are talking about or what is going on with you computer it is impossible to help you further. The only thing I can suggest is to run a virus checker (such as Nortons or AVG) and let it clean the computer in "Deep Scan" mode and if it brings up anything to do with the regedit program, then let it heal that too.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.

3. Hold Alt-T to pull up Tools menu
4. Click Manage Addons
5. Just disable Addons that you think that is not important
I see that you need an anivirus program that can help you without having to delete windows and start all over again.
I see you have XP and that the Virus shuts you down every 20 mins,
try process explorer this should help you terminate the virus temoporarily, after termination, download malwarebytes since you have XP this should run smoothly on your machine, this will help you detect and delete what ever virus spyware your machine may have.
Sounds like you have caught an infection - in the name of a browser hijacker... which hijacks your requests and sends you to another site. The owners of the site you are being redirected to are not necessarily to blame.
To rid yourself of this nasty annoyance you need to do the following.
1) Download HiJackThis (if you do not have it) 2) Download Adaware (if you do not have it) 3) Download Avast! Anti-Virus (if you do not haveanti-virus software) 4) Disconnect from the internet 5) Run HijackThis 6) Run Adaware 7) Run your Anti-Virus software 8) Reboot your computer 9) Connect to internet
Use your new software regularly. Your anti-virus software should have picked this malware up - maybe it is time to change to a better AV solution... like Avast!
If this helped you then please help me and vote kindly, Thank you

You are right that this is because of a virus attack. The virus has changed somethign in the registry. Follow the below methods: Method 1:Go to registry editor by running regedit in the run box. Go to this key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
In the right hand area, double click hidden and change the value to 1. Now you’re all set to go. Check it in your tools menu if the changes have taken effect. Method 2:1. Click “Start” -> “Run…” (or press Windows key + R) 2. Type “regedit” and click “Ok”. 3. Find the key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\ Advanced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL 4. Look at the “CheckedValue” key… This should be a DWORD key. If it isn’t, delete the key. 5. Create a new key called “CheckedValue” as a DWORD (hexadecimal) with a value of 1. 6. The “Show hidden files & folders” check box should now work normally. Enjoy!
