You use the gpedit.msc command in the run box if your OS supports this command. (Your lower end OS will not have it - usually the pro versions, etc.) Check it out further on google. Just be careful.

Tried to roll back computer wont doit it said system restore turned off by group policy contact. your domain administrator. also tried the restoe disc wont reed it. also desk top said active desktop...


Are you the owner of the computer?
Was your name recorded, when the computer used for the first time?

Then you are the Domain Administrator, or for short - Administrator

This sounds so far, like a 'Scareware Malware' is trying to take over your computer.

I needed to know if you could access Control Panel, because in time, all Administrative functions are taken over by this scareware malware.

No access to the main user account, which is the Administrator account, also.
No access to any administrator functions, such as Control Panel, Task Manager, and Windows Explorer.
(Not to be confused with Internet Explorer)

The scareware malware doesn't want you to remove it, hence the block on Administrator functions.

How did you try to access System Restore?
Did you try to access the long way, or through Control Panel?

(Long way:
Start>All Programs>Up to Accessories>Over and down to System Tools>Over and down to System Restore.

Control Panel access:
Start>Control Panel>Performance and Maintenance>System Restore on the upper left )

When trying to access System Restore. Did the System Restore window come up?
If it does, try clicking on - System Restore Settings, that is underlined at the bottom of the paragraph.

In the Settings window see if - Turn off System Restore, has the box checked next to it. If so, click on the box to remove the green arrow.
Now click on Apply at the bottom right corner, then click on OK, at the bottom left corner of the Settings window.

No access to the System Restore window?

Then I suggest it's time to download the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, and kick some booty.

The rogue scareware malware that I'm referencing to, first came out as MS Antivirus.

Has subsequently changed it's name through the years.

More information:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MS_Antivirus

The free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, will wipe it out with one hand behind it's back.

You can download it to the computer you are using now, burn it to a CD disk, and install it in the infected computer.

The best way to download the free version of Malwarebytes that I have found, is to not go to their website, but to download from Cnet.com
(A respected website)

I have found that downloading the free version of Malwarebytes from their website, has the tendency to pop up wanting you to buy the paid for version.

The Cnet download never does. I have been using it for over 2 years, and automatic updates are included.

The Malwarebytes program only runs when you turn it on.
Pros: Doesn't bog down your computer

Cons: You have to remember to run a scan at a regularly scheduled time, to your preference.

This is the Cnet download website for the free version of Malwarebytes,

http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

Left-click on the - Download Now (4.88MB), next to the green square.
The rest is advertisement for other programs. (Not recommended by me)

Should you have any problems downloading, installing, or running Malwarebytes, let me know.
We'll go step by step.
(Sentence by sentence if we have to. What ever it takes)

If upon installing the Malwarebytes CD into your optical drive, (CD/DVD drive) does not start automatically, let me know.

One way is to go to Start>My Computer, and double-click on the optical drive name the CD is in.

The other way we will proceed to get more technical, and go into the BIOS Setup utility.
There I will have you go to Boot Options, and change the first boot device to CDROM.

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-…

Perhaps one of these links will give you the correct solution

Sounds like you have the famous "rogue security" virus. Be sure and back up all your data before continuing.

Download and intsall this software (it's not free but but better than a tech's fee) Cost $30.00:

http://www.enigmasoftware.com/

If you cannot even get to this page, then get on a second computer and download, purchase securely and install from a CDrom or flash drive to infected computer.

Run the program, register and kill everything. Fast, easy takes 10 minutes or less.

The other way around this is to back up everything and reformat computer. Scan all documents before putting back on computer. Virus is gone. This process takes one day to complete and is free if you have the restore disk or Windows disk.
