Every time I try to open task manager or regedit it says that they have been disabled by the administrator. I have been to many websites to try to remedy the situation. I've tried going into gpedit.msc to change it, and when I restart my computer the problem is back again. I've run NOD 32 antivirus, Comodo system cleaner, and Malwarebytes. Each time I run malwarebytes it always comes up with the same two viruses: Hijack.regedit and Hijack.taskmanager. No matter how many times I have Malwarebytes delete them they come back. I don't know what to do at this point. Help please.
Tufenuf, I appreciate the advice and help, but I have actually already been to these sites you suggested and tried all of these methods. What I really need to know is how to remove these viruses that are on my computer. Is there a way to remove them? They just keep coming back after Malwarebytes deletes them.
bannana77, It's possible that the virus/malware is in one or more of your System Restore points. Have you tried turning off System Restore then restarting your computer which will delete all System Restore points. You would then open System Restore and crreate a new System Restore point. To turn off System Restore right click My Computer, choose Properties, under the System Restore tab checkmark "Turn off System Restore" click Apply/OK and restart your computer.
Tufenuf, I tried turning off the system restore. Unfortunately this did not remedy the situation. Both regedit and task manager are still disabled after restart and the viruses are still there. Is there any way at all to get rid of these viruses? OR is there some way I can write some code or create a new registry that will automatically enable taskmanager/regedit AFTER the viruses have disabled them at start up?
