All of a sudden and do not know, my computer can not open the Task Manager, regedit also can not. Every time I want to open Task Manager via Ctrl + Alt + Del and Regedit via the Command Prompt / Run regedit Always outgoing message: * has been disabled by your administrator. What cause? How do I restore?

I don't actually know how to recover a pc once it got this kind of problem. But I'm sure it's caused by malware or virus. I usually back everything I can and make sure they're all clean and then I make a fresh format of my computer. Hahaha

First delete the malware or virus from your computer then start recover your data By formatting you loose your performance of Hard-Disk so try format your PC is your last option try to find out solutions instead formatting PC Ok use GO*GLE

I agree with the above posts, this looks like you've had some sort of Virus attack, there is lots of information at http://www.pcshell.com/support/registryeditordisabled.shtml (not a referal link) including several possible solutions Good luck

Probably due to virus. try to scan or use PCMAV SMADAV To enable Task Manager, try to copy-paste it on the run: REG add HKCU \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentV ... / v DisableTaskMgr / t REG_DWORD / d 0 / f

If your computer is your own and not linked to a network (in an office, for example, so that you have to log in to an account) this is a virus. Download a good antivirus solution - AVG Free, Avast! (free) or Avira (free) - and run a full scan. Since the virus may have restricted access to certain things, you may have to download the antivirus package on another computer, put it onto a CD or USB stick and install it from there. You may also have to start the computer in 'Safe Mode' in order to download and/or scan your disk.
