Hi Silverheart,

From what I understand you need to open REGEIDT using the RUN option in Windows XP Professional. And since you are not an administrator or you don't have an access to an administrator account you are not able to open or access it. Like you said this is you work computer.

The obvious way to bypass this is to login to a account with administrator privileges, this will pretty much let you do eveyrthing on the computer. If you don't know anybody who has that type of account. Then the last option is booting up into SAFE MODE. You can do this by rebooting the PC and pressing F8 before the WinXP logo which will give you the "Windows Advaced Options Menu" you can then choose Safe Mode, just the plain safe mode then press enter. Then it will show you the logon screen and you will be suprised to find a hidden account called "Administrator" listed there if the Welcome screen is there, otherwise if it's the usual username and password prompt, just type under username: Administrator (with the capital A) then leave the password blank and press enter to login. Usually this will let you get into a Administartor account and make changes to the PC. Since most people don't assign any password to this hidden Administrator account.

Worst case scenario these options don't work, most likely you may have to go with the answer above and just reinstall everything from scratch. Just make sure to BACKUP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT FILES before doing this since everything will be lost if you do format reinstall of Windows XP.

Hope this helps you alot!

Peace!

Using UAC in Windows Vista


Windows Vista has the built-in ability to automatically reduce the potential of security breaches in the system. It does that by automatically enabling a feature called User Account Control (or UAC for short). The UAC forces users that are part of the local administrators group to run like they were regular users with no administrative privileges.








Although UAC clearly improves the security on Windows Vista, under some scenarios you might want to disable it, for example when giving demos in front of an audience (demos that are not security related, for example). Some home users might be tempted to disable UAC because of the additional mouse clicking it brings into their system, however I urge them not to immediately do so, and try to get used to it instead.
Anyway, if required, you can disable UAC by using one of the following methods:
Method #1 - Using MSCONFIG
  1. Launch MSCONFIG by from the Run menu.
  2. Click on the Tools tab. Scroll down till you find "Disable UAC" . Click on that line.
    disable_uac_1.gif
  3. Press the Launch button.
  4. A CMD window will open. When the command is done, you can close the window.
  5. Close MSCONFIG. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
You can re-enable UAC by selecting the "Enable UAC" line and then clicking on the Launch button.
*Recommended: Speed up Vista boot times by reducing the number of programs that load at startup. Control your Vista startup list with this Vista app
Method #2 - Using Regedit
  1. Open Registry Editor.
  2. In Registry Editor, navigate to the following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
  3. Locate the following value (DWORD): EnableLUA and give it a value of 0.
    disable_uac_2.gif Note: As always, before making changes to your registry you should always make sure you have a valid backup. In cases where you're supposed to delete or modify keys or values from the registry it is possible to first export that key or value(s) to a .REG file before performing the changes.
  4. Close Registry Editor. You need to reboot the computer for changes to apply.
In order to re-enable UAC just change the above value to 1.
Method #3 - Using Group Policy This can be done via Local Group Policy or via Active Directory-based GPO, which is much more suited for large networks where one would like to disable UAC for many computers at once.
If using Local Group Policy you'll need to open the Group Policy Editor (Start > Run > gpedit.msc) from your Vista computer.
If using in AD-based GPO, open Group Policy Management Console (Start > Run > gpmc.msc) from a Vista computer that is a member of the domain. In the GPMC window, browse to the required GPO that is linked to the OU or domain where the Vista computers are located, then edit it.
  1. In the Group Policy Editor window, browse to Computer Configuration > Windows Settings > Security Settings > Local Policies > Security Options.
    disable_uac_gpo_1.gif
  2. In the right pane scroll to find the User Access Control policies (they're down at the bottom of the window). You need to configure the following policies:disable_uac_gpo_2.gif
  3. You'll need to reboot your computers.
Method #4 - Using Control Panel
  1. Open Control Panel.
  2. Under User Account and Family settings click on the "Add or remove user account".
    disable_uac_3.gif
  3. Click on one of the user accounts, for example you can use the Guest account.
  4. Under the user account click on the "Go to the main User Account page" link.
    disable_uac_4.gif
  5. Under "Make changes to your user account" click on the "Change security settings" link.
    disable_uac_5.gif
  6. In the "Turn on User Account Control (UAC) to make your computer more secure" click to unselect the "Use User Account Control (UAC) to help protect your computer". Click on the Ok button.
    disable_uac_6.gif
  7. You will be prompted to reboot your computer. Do so when ready.
    disable_uac_7.gif
In order to re-enable UAC just select the above checkbox and reboot.

My task manager doesn't work anymore can u help me fix this?


Try this:

If Task Manager has been disabled, you can re-enable it if you have administrator privileges on the computer.
To enable Task Manager on a computer running Windows Vista Home Basic or Windows Vista Home Premium This procedure requires you to edit the registry. An incorrect change to your computer's registry could render your computer inoperable. We strongly recommend that you back up the registry before making any changes. For more information, see Back up the registry.
  1. Open the Registry Editor by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, typing regedit into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  2. Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
  3. Double-click System, double-click DisableTaskMgr, change Value data to 0, and then click OK.
To enable task Manager on a computer running other editions of Windows Vista
  1. Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, type gpedit.msc in the search box, and then press ENTER.
  2. Under User Configuration, double-click Administrative Templates.
  3. Double-click System, and then click Crtl+Alt+Del Options.
  4. Double-click Remove Task Manager, click Disabled, and then click OK.
or you're computer might be infected by a virus, if you're not the one who disabled the task manager.

Try to scan your computer also.

Enable the Registry Editor, Task Manager and Folder Options Disabled by Viru


Virus attack is common these days and we often come across the problems like Disabled Folder Options or like Task Manager and Regedit disabled by Administrator. These problems are nothing but virus activities. The virus has infected our system and stopping us from accessing these options.
23f407e.jpg
Pressing keys Ctrl+Alt+Del opens up a dialog saying that “Task Manager has been disabled by your Administrator” whereas you are the Administrator yourself. It becomes very annoying when you think that you can fix this problem by going into the Registry Editor but it doesn’t show up. Even the Folder Options gets disabled.
This problem is generally caused by a virus named “Brontok” but don’t worry just use RRT (Remove Restrictions Tool) that can easily solve this problem. RRT is free and can successfully enable:
1. Folder Options
2. Regedit (Registry Editor)
3. Task Manager
4. Show Hidden Files option
The tool will come more useful if you use it in Safe Mode.
Download RRT

How to enable disabled registry editor


Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc -> User Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> System -> Prevent access to registry editing tools -> Right Click Properties -> Disabled

Cannot enable sytems restore. Message: Group


1. Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe and press Enter

2. Navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore

In the right-pane:

* Delete the value DisableConfig
* Delete the value DisableSR

3. Exit the Registry Editor.

In Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.

1. Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC

2. Navigate to this path:

-> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
---> System
----> System Restore

3. Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured

4. Set Turn off Configuration to Not Configured
More Information

Turn off System Restore corresponds to DisableSR registry value. With this Policy is turned ON, the System Restore tab may be missing in My Computer Properties. Also, when you run System Restore (rstrui.exe), you receive this message:

System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your domain Administrator.

Turn off Configuration corresponds to DisableConfig registry value. With this Policy turned ON, the System Restore tab will remain displayed but the user cannot configure the SR options. It reads disabled by Group Policy.
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/srpolicy.htm


Or perhaps you can review this
Control of System Restore function has been disabled by "Group Policy".
How do regain control?Go to Start>Run, key in gpedit.msc and hit ENTER. Under Computer
Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, then click on
the System Restore folder. In the right-hand pane, double-click on Turn off
Configuration and, under the Setting tab, click in the radio button beside
Not Configured. Click on Apply then OK.

Please visit the following Microsoft Knowledge Base website
and review the topic titled: "Method 1: Use Group Policy".

How to Disable the System Restore Configuration User Interface
http://support.microsoft.com/default.asp…

Note: You must be an administrator or owner, or have administrative
privileges to perform this task.

Undo the changes using Group Policy Editor (Gpedit.msc)

-or-

Open Registry Editor and navigate to:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Wind… NT\SystemRestore

In the right-pane, delete the value "DisableConfig".
Close Registry Editor
Close and re-open the System Restore properties page.


Note: Group Policy Editor is only Available in XP Professional (according to http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-…

REGEDIT


regedit - to disable this file from running, delete it. if you want to turn off the registry, boot computer into safe mode (tapping f8 key while booting). if you need to manually uninstall a program, do an F3 search in the registry for the program name as a search string. there can be as many as 500 registry entries for the program... if you adopt the f3, delete, enter, f3, delete, enter, you may be able to uninstall the program's registry entry in as little as 15 minute to 1 hour... best of luck, I am not responsible if you delete a wrong value and crash your computer .... heheheeheheh.
