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!

How to enable registry-editor in windows 8


Go to Search, and type in gpedit.msc, and press enter.
In Group Policy Editor, select User Configuration. Then select Administrative Templates, then select System. Then double click on "Prevent access to registry editing tools". A pop-up window will come up with two tabs, select "Settings" tab. Click on the radio button that says "Disable" and click on OK button. It sounds stupid, but you will be "disabling the prevention of access to the registry editor." If Registry Editor is not immediately available, you may have to restart to computer. Good luck!

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.

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

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.

Re.Launching Registry editor,To Cure CD-DVD-writer not Responding


Are you the Administrator, and do you have the Administrator's password?

If so, then log in as Administrator and make the necesary changes.

However, if not, then you must reinstall the OS, to establish yourself as such.

My task manager has been disabled due to virus attack. help me


There is a registry hack to enable or disable Windows NT TaskManager. The same registry hack applies to Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1=Enablethis key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disablethis key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

As part of the enhanced management available in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, rather than risking a registry change, as an administrator you can enable or disable Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro's TaskManager using Group Policy Editor. This can be applied to the local policy. Note: if you are trying to override your organizations group policy, you can't. As soon as you re-authenticate to the domain, the domain or OU Group Policy will rewrite the registry setting. But if the TaskManager was accidently disabled or you need to control this item for a set of standalone boxes this is for you:
  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
  • In the Group Policy settings window
    • Select User Configuration
    • Select Administrative Templates
    • Select System
    • Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
    • Select Remove Task Manager
    • Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

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.
