My Problem is same as other topic about winxp.exe,

1. Task Manager was disabled. Everytimes I tried to open Task Manager by using crtl-alt-del, a message was shown up - Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator. Task Manager also greyed out if I tried to access it through right-click on Task Bar.

2. There was a message came up everytime when I started/re-started the laptop - Title: C:\windows\system32\USERXP.exe; Message body: Windows cannot find 'C:\windows\system32\USERXP.exe'.

3. right-click on any item in Windows Explorer won't show the context menu

4. Control Panel missing/disappear from Start menu. I could not get it by any mean.

5. Command Prompt was disabled by administrator. (As before, I have admin right)

6. I could not bring up the Property window of Task Bar. The message was: This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.

7. Desktop icons was all disappeared

and I tried , msncleaner.exe and SDFix.exe according to instruction.

as soon as i know infected, i tested with 2 users name, adminstrtor and other user accounts with administrator right.
I fix the adminstrator user account first and it is successful. but when i tested another user account with admin right,

got the error message "The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator. Press any key to continue..." but start>run command is disappeared in my laptop.

now, i have to fix both users with "The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator. Press any key to continue..." and problem is as same as above.

pls help.

best regards,

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner to get the Admin functions back.

Lift Restrictions - TM, Regedit and CMD - #275 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg/.vbs file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry/run the script. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Thanks a lot,

nearly All of the problem have been solved except I could not bring up the Property window of Task Bar. The message was: This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer.

and I would like to know SDFix is compactible with windows 2003 or not.

Best Regards
