Windows 7: everything is "disabled by the administrator" .. HELP

everything is "disabled by the administrator" .. HELP

Hello all,

I recently got a virus which has literally robbing of access to almost every essential software on my pc.

Access to the following are disabled:

Command prompt, Task Manager, RegEdit, and many others I can't remember right now. I updated my anti-virus which has then obliterated the virus, but all these stuff remain not accessible. I did a little research on the net and found some solutions posted for Window Vista. Unfortunately these solutions don't work for me. So please if any can help me get proper access to these stuff again. I know it has to do with the registry, but I have no access to that either.

I have win 7.

thanks

Have you tried the System Restore, picking a day that you know is PRIOR to the virus infection? (You may have to boot into Safe Mode for this.)

Do you have any system backups?

Use system restore.
There is no means updating anti-virus on this time because virus already take place your pc.
So the thing you can do now, restore your system to the earlier time and try repair from that time where virus still can't attack you system.
If that also can't, you only have choice to format you HDD.

Thanks for all the replies. The virus seem to also wiped out my restore points. When I check everything is empty unlike before. So I can't restore to an earlier time. I will download Ezio suggested and report back if my problems have been solved.

Thanks again for all replies.

It worked. Anti-Malware gave me back access to regedit and Start Task Manager. From there I used Regedit to gain access back to the command prompt. So thanks a lot Ezio and everyone who replied.

Now that's over with, I have another problem, how to stop window 7's nagging "Activate windows now"

It comes up the screen about every 30 minutes or so and when I tried to "activate" once, it tells me my copy of windows isn't genuine. But I paid $39 (student discount via a third party vendor) for it last year. I don't understand all this genuine crap but all I know is I paid for this software, it's not a hacked version from some news group. So please any help on how to turn or stop the message from interrupting me would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Your welcome.

Regarding the notification nag, click the arrow at the notification area and click 'Customize'. Find 'Windows Activation Client' and set it to 'Hide icon and notification'.
