    I can't normally open regedit and taskmgr on my computer, but they work if I rename them. Also it take a while to open CMD:(
    Any clues, guys?
    Thanks.
    PS: had scanned viruses using nod32, the result was clean

    AVZ Antiviral Toolkit has options to unlock these. File->System Restore, then choose the two appropriate operations for these two programs.

    Thanks guys, i will try.:)

    taskmgr and regedit were unlocked, but cmd still takes a while to open.
    The same thing happens to hijackthis and processExplorer, I would need to do the same renaming trick,
    otherwise they won;t run.
    I am guessing there must be something blocking all these, but i don;t know what it is :(
