Can't open Windows 7 regedit or task manager

Specs: Windows 7, Dell
I've tried opening regedit from the start screen and from the command line. It briefly flashes on the screen, then closes down. I downloaded and installed Registry Booster from Uniblue, but it didn't help. One proposed fix said to use gpedit, but that's not available on Windows 7 Home Premium.

you might have some sort of virus or spyware running silently which is causing this. start in safe mode, go to msconfig and check your start up items.
anything that looks out of place, uncheck it and try again
