My wife's laptop has Vista Home Premium 32bit, using Norton 360 anti-virus. The icons in the notification area are gone, her folders on the desktop are gone, and when I right click on the toolbar, the task manager pick is greyed out. If I try to pick it, it tells me it has been disabled by the administrator. I looked on Microsoft's website, it said to go to Start, type regedit in the search bar to get to the Registry Editor to set the Disable to 0. I tried, but nothing comes up in the search, I can't get to the Editor. Any suggestions on what I can do?
