can not acces regedit - Page 3

post #21 of 23
Ok follow the link i provided before and download the AVG antivirus free version.

Now install and turn PC off, turn on and boot into safe mode, you should be able to do that by pressing a key usually when a picture comes up, usually of your motherboards make or if it a make say dell then a dell picture could come up, its something like F8 to 'boot to safe mode'.

When in safe mode go Start > then right click my computer then properties then click on the system restore tab and turn it off, then scan for a virus in the AVG program.

EDIT: ok sorry i just lost my cool, not because you didn't understand, but you weren't acknowledging that i was there, lol!
Like i would say do this and you would post after i said it how do i do this and im like did you even try what i said.
Yea and sorry myself mate!

Go into the Windows folder on your C: drive, then the system32 folder. Finally, find cmd.exe. Run that and then in the prompt type..."start regedit" Without quotes of course. Another way to find the command prompt is to go to Start>Programs>Accessories and Command Prompt may be in there.

The IT department at my school restricts our access to the run command, but command prompt does the same exact thing, lol.
Your IT Department sounds like a bunch of dumbasses. Lock down the Run Command yet not the processes themselves lol......

It really sounds like the account Group policy is shot to **** - On my domain I run an OU that is 'super restricted' as in what you've described as your issue. Even if you were logging on as a user by default (or even guest) you still have Task Manager, Run and even Regedit but you wont have write access nor special permissions just read (aside the keys and subkeys your apps write to). I would say to log on as the default Administrator Account (if you remember the password) and try to rectify from there by recreating your account.

Howdy.

I'm having a similar problem here. I can access Task Manager just fine, though.

Whether I use Run or Cmd I am told that my admin has disabled registry editing. How did I do that? I am 600% sure that I am using admin account. I have run anti-spyware and anti-virus scans. I got a few hits on spy-ware, but nothing on the virus.

So, here's my question: How do you turn off regedit access as admin? I think if I knew that I could undo whatever setting keeps popping this message up.

Thanks.
