This is driving me nuts! I've been at this for over 7 hours and can't figure it out.

If I try to go to regedit or cntrol/alt/delete, I get "Disabled by your administrator" error. Customer is also running very slow. This all started today. This is my pc and I am the administrator. Please help!!!

It's still doing it... Even after a reboot.

I'm having this issue on my desktop and laptop and I think some kind of virus is doing it. What do I do now????

This sounds like the Smitfraud variant I've had so much fun with lately. Running the Smitfraud removal tool has worked well for me, along with other spyware/virus removal programs.

Something to try:

Related post: http://www.windowsbbs.com/general-security...istrator-2.html

That second link is a bit long but you can skip over to the bottom of Page 2 and then read up if there's anything you want to know that led up to Page 2.
