Hi, recently whenever I press ctrl+alt+del my Task Manager is greyed out and not accessible. I just had a lot of good help in this topic if you think that has anything to do with it.

Thank you for any assistance.

UPDATE

When I try to enter regedit I am told that reg editing has been disabled by system administrator. What the [bleep] is going on?

So sorry for the multiple posts.

I found the registry disabled in HiJackThis and fixed, my task manager is still blocked.

This seems to be a re-occuring problem but no one can find anything in a HJT entry to suggest that someone has in a sense "cracked" my security. If it is a hacker, how the [bleep] is this happening?

So sorry, you can close topic now unless someone wants to try to figure out how someone messed around in my registry.

I re-enabled it on my own :tazz:

many a malware program will add group policy settings to your registry to prevent you from removing them
