I made the mistake of letting someone else use my computer in adminstrator mode and he downloaded something that installed Spy-Shredder. It had all the classic symptoms, but with a few new wrinkles apparently: couldn't get to the control panel, regedit was likewise forbidden, couldn't boot up in safe mode, even! I followed the instructions I found here, and did finally clean it all up, then used Ad-Aware to finish, but I still can't run RegEdit.

It says: "Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator."

Does anyone know how to regain control of the registry editor?? And don't tell me I have to edit the registry to do it! :-) Unless there's another way, of course.
