OK Guys I need help with my laptop
Its a compaq presario 2500 running SP2
the problem(s) is/are that things have been dissappearing
It all starts on startup where it pretends to freeze and when i press ALT+CTRL+DEL it unfreezes but then a message saying "Task Manager Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator"
OK so i thought it was a task manager problem, so i researched and found out it can be a registry problem, so i try to access "run' from the start menu and its not there!!! So I found out that that can also be a registry problem.
So i go to C/Windows and i find regedit. So I go to the values that should be responsible for these problems and sure enough it was them. So i restore them to what they should be and problem fixed right? WRONG!
I was going to turn off the machine at that point when i go back to the start menu and "Shut Down" is not there!!! Log off was there so i logged off and logged on again and bang back from scratch. Freeze, so i ALT+CTRL+DEL it unfreezes but then a message saying "Task Manager Has Been Disabled By Your Administrator" and run is not there again and shit down still isnt there.
so thats where im at right now so help
heres other things to consider:
i looked through the symantec website and i found a similar worm so i followed the instructions on how to get rid of it. The first instruction was to turn off system restore so i cannot restore my computer now (plus the resolution it offered didnt do much!)
i AM an administrator
