Can you access command prompt? Can you create a new admin account?

Enable Regedit

Okay so I wanted to check your account type.

Try the tutorial here:

Regedit - Enable or Disable

Try option one.

Also if you didn't disable regedit pay attention to the warning about scanning for malware. Other members will be able to help you with that.

Suggestion

Well what happens if you run the script in option one? What happens if you run it again?

You could also try this software. Tested and working for me!

Mini Regedit Free Download - Softpedia

If you run the program with all checkboxes cleared then click "Apply" does it restore regedit?
