Admin rights

Hi all,
back to the wizz kids......again!
Just did my annual format reinstall and now I have no task manager at alt-ctrl-del.
Tried Shawn's regedit but I get this message "registry editing has been disabled by the administrator"
I am the admin or so it says in User Accounts??
I added elevated admin rights and if I log off and on to that Task manager is back but I don't want to have to reset a whole new scenario for another a/c. Anybody know what to do?

Hello mate, :)

The downloadable .vbs file in option 1 of the tutorial below should be able to enable it again for you.

I'm glad it was able to help. Be sure to keep an eye on your system and do scans multiple times a day everyday to help make sure your system is still clean.

admin user lost some admin rights
I can't delete a file from the desktop. When I try, it says to get the rights from the specified admin user (which I'm logged on). The strange thing is that I still can create other users from this account (including admins). Any suggestion on what to do?
