You may try these two links and run the SDFix tool on your computer. Your computer is infected with a Trojan/Spyware/Virus.;8019774;/fileinfo.html/1/1

Alternatively you may try running the SuperAntispyware, which you can get from

Hope this would resolve the issue you are facing.

Start by logging on as the Administrator so you can check the Task Manager and find out what Application or Process is monopolizing the system.

If the system is still unresponsive boot into Safe Mode. (Press F8 before the Windows startup screen appears.) If everything is fine in Safe Mode type MSCONFIG at the Command Prompt and start disabling features until you find the culprit.

Last resort, buy or borrow an external USB CD/DVD drive and use it to reinstall Windows.

Important: Reinstalling will ERASE the hard drive.

DVD-RW optical drive not working properly

The two symptoms could be attributed to a viral activity. Some viruses will disable your CD/dvd burner for the reasons you cannot make a backup copy with your important files.

I suggest, it is safer to scan your harddrive using another clean computer with a good antivirus and malware remover.

Even I too experienced that everytime when you access cmd,msconfig,task manager, sytem restore, registry editor there's some kind of counter. Until you reach the number of times you access that it will release its destructive job. For me it also block me of using USB, even floppy.

Commonly this is a Vundo activity. Many free antivirus can disinfect this. Disinfecting directly from its own hard drive. But the risk of your important files is the priority that is why I suggest to it using another computer. But it is your call.

I recommend Avira, malwarebytes antimalware. Install, update then scan. And still check your DVD burner for hardware defect.

I think this should be enough. Just ask again.

Denied access

Your computer infected by virus. many virus did it and you should scan your computer with an uptodate antivirus software. You can also replace task manager function with process explorer here but it will only work in one time execution if the virus still there.
Or if you sure that your computer is clean and have admin ask him to enabled it.

Task manager disabled

You may get into advanced boot options by pressing F8 key during the boot, choose "Safe Mode". Choose Administrator account and change the user settings accordingly. Since you have concluded it caused by Virus, obtain a reliable antivirus and antispyware software. If issue persist perform system restore by choosing the earlier date that system was working fine. If you need further assistance please post your question.

Good Luck
