    My regedit function has been deleted or disabled. When I run the command, I am told that Windows can not find regedit and to make sure I typed the command correctly. I am not sure when this happened but not very long ago, days at most. I recently downloaded a software program called Smartdraw, ran a virus check on it and it was clean. I removed the software but still can not access my registry.

    I have tried to do the following to fix the problem;

    Download and run the following software:

    Copy and run the following:
    REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\ /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

    Have just run Trend Micro which was negative.

    Also tried to run Spyware Blaster and was given the following error message: Error: Access violation at 0x73483F5A (tried to read from 0x00000014), program terminated

    I ran vbrun60sp5.exe which is an installation for visual basic 6.0 run time files which corrected the problem. However, when I looked up the error, it pointed to a registry issue.

    Now running Kapersky but it is taking a long time. Nothing so far.

    Any help I thank you for

    Here is my Hijack this log data.
