I have the same thing on the PC I am writing this from, however I am writing this from my place of work. The reason for mine is that the our IT guys have put a group policy in place to prevent users from modifying entries in the registry. I assume you are coming across this error on a PC based in your home that is not connected to a Domain?
I was having a browse on the Microsoft website for you and came across this article which explains how to fix the taskbar error message. Unfortunately it requires you to edit parts of the registry also. Here is the link anyway: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555480
You could try and do a google search on your registry editing message, however be wary of what sites you use......alternatively....wait to see if anyone else on here can point you in the right direction.
Another reason might be that you have some sort of virus or malware on your computer, therefore it might be worth running a full system virus scan and spyware scans to check. Failing that, post a Hijackthis log in the malware forum and one of the experts will take a look at it for you.

I see you are referring to a cracked version of Kaspersky here. It is against the rules to discuss such matters. That is probably how all your problems started in the first place.
I used KAV 6, because I couldn't find a key for 7 & 8,
My personal preference is Avira, just make sure you remove Norton first.

Please remember, people are helping you for FREE. Be patient, somebody will help you as soon as they become available. We all have REAL jobs, families, have other interests, and may live half way around the world. Plus, there may be people in front of you waiting for help. Following these steps will lighten our work load, and allow us to help more members.
The reality is that Hijack This logs are getting more complicated, require more time to analyze, and the infections are more difficult to remove -- often requiring a multi-step process. Anything that you can do to help us before posting a log is greatly appreciated.
As already suggested, please go to the Malware section of this forum and follow the instructions at the top. Especially the Malware Removal Guides and Tutorials page. That will give you several steps that will help you clean up most of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the cleanup process you are still having difficulty, and you may not be, then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the Malware Section, please return to this thread. Please do not post a HiJackThis log in this thread unless asked to do so and then only as an attachment. To attach log, when requested, either change the .log extension to .txt, or put the log into a compressed (zipped) folder.
Here are some free malware software that may help you. Use them one at a time so as to prevent conflicts:
LavaSoft's AdAware 2008:
Spybot Search & Destroy:
Anti-Virus Programs -
RogueRemover Free 1.24 :
Include the already recommended Alvira.
