I got hit by some malware that claimed to be a "PC Doctor", lights, sound, popup windows ready to helpfully scan my infected machine, changed my wallpaper too. It locked me out of the Task Manager and other vital systems tools but I managed to get most of it back after running RKill and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, however I'm still unable to access the Control Panel, Microsoft Security Center, right-clicking on the desktop or while exploring files on the HD, even using the secret Admin account couldn't do it, I just get a message stating
"Restrictions: This operation has been cancelled due to restrictions in effect on this computer. Please contact your system administrator.".
I also use ESET NOD32 which pegged it as a variant of Win32 Anislot.a worm, I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 BTW.
