mai_wes, Try the "Remove Restrictions Tool (RRT)" which you and download for Free at the link below. That problem you're having is usually the result of a virus/malware infection. I'd make sure that you update your virus definitions as well as any anti spyware updates and run full scans.

Is that computer part of a Domain in a network environment?

"and i could find "regedit" but each time i clicked on it, it said to my that registry editing has been disabled by my administrator".

The above seems to be self explanitory. The administrator of your system doesn't want you to edit the registry.

If you are the administrator than login as that person.

It appears you are not on a domain in an office. If you were the system administrator would have made sure your virus protection was up to date.

The symptom is one I recently had from a customer with a rootkit virus infection. What internet security are you running? How often is it updated? Once the system gets to this state I normally recommend making sure the data is backed up and then wiping the drive and doing a full format and reinstall. You will spend more time than it is worth to try repairing the problem. An XP repair install will not correct this virus problem, it only extends the time you start a fresh install.

The first step if data is not backed up would be to slave the drive to a known clean system after making sure it is updated and protected.
1. Install the drive and immediately run a full/in-depth scan on the drive checking for all problems.
2. Your anti-virus needs to be able to detect rootkits during scan.
3. Offload the essential data files.
4. Reinstall the drive in the original system.
5. Now run the full reinstall of XP and all programs.

This is the quickest way to get back up since you could be looking at hours of scanning and trying repairs and still not be successful.

I agree with rrlyon unless you are on a domain with the said restrictions. If you are on a domain then do contact the system adminstrator for assistance.

If you are not on a domain then right click Task Bar>Properties. Click Start Menu on the next screen, then click Customize. On the next screen click Advanced and scroll down the list until you see Run Command. It should have a tick in the box to the left. If no tick, put one there. OK your way out and you should see the Rum command show on the Start Menu.

Run Command - Restore

When you click Start, Run and enter a path and folder name (example: C:\Windows), you may receive and error message.

The Registry branch for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder is damaged or corrupted. Fix: http://www.dougknox.com/xp/fileasso... To use: Download the ZIP file and open it. Extract the REG file and double click it. Answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad by right clicking them and selecting Edit.

mai wes, To restore the Run command go to the link below and scroll down to Line 57 (right column) and click on "Restore the Run Command" to download a reg file. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. If you can't import the reg file see the "NOTE" below

http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_...

NOTE: If your EXE file associations are corrupted, it can be difficult to open REGEDIT, or to even import REG files. To work around this, press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run). This will open a Command Prompt window. Enter REGEDIT.EXE and press Enter. Click on File>Import then locate that reg file you downloaded click it to hilite it then click the Open button.
