    I've been meaning to look into the fact that I couldn't access my Task Manager anymore at all or even when I try to run regedit I get messages like "Registry editing has been disabled by your computer administrator" even though I am one of two of the only administrators for this machine. I tried the System restore a couple of months back but that hadn't helped anything. Any idea of what's causing this or how I can fix it?

    THIS should take care of the Task Manager. Go to step 3.

    THIS should take care of regedit.
