I was trying to update my Norton Antivirus and got a message that it couldn't install due to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and to change my registry settings with the regedit command. The instructions told me to change the settings for the Administrator and another I can't remember......I think User. Well, neither of the ones listed were shown. I'm not real good with the programming so I asked the IT guy at work what to do. He instructed me to go to regedit and add the two shown and then make the setting changes that Symantic suggested. I did that and then when I went to log in, nothing comes up except for a blank desktop. My wallpaper is there but nothing else. Again I told the IT guy what was going on. He instructed me to delete the two (Admin,User) registerys that I added. I still get nothing on my desktop. I can go into Task Manager, by hitting Ctrl+Alt+Delete and can see that everything is there. Is there a way I can restore this back? I've already tried to go back to an earlier setting after hitting F8 during boot, but nothing changes. I'm about to pull what hair I have left out. I appreciate any help.
