When I click on run and type in regedit a box pops up --regedit has been disabled by administrator. Is this normal.

No, not if it's your computer and you haven't applied any restrictions yourself. It could be the result of a trojan infection, have you done an updated scan?

To remove the restriction, download the unlock.reg file from the link below to your desktop. Double click it to run and confirm to merge to the registry. Then try regedit again.

As Rog indicated, this could indicate a virus/trojan.
Did you run a complete antivirus scan with updated definitions?
