Try opening Command Prompt (run as admin) and type:
Code:
sfc /scannow
This should repair any registry errors.

What do u mean by the setting lock in your first post?

Is it a software to deny access to all this?

AT some point in time it is just going to be easier to clean re-install. Kill your brother and re-install the OS
