    Unable to open TaskMgr, MsConfig, CMD, and regedit

    Hi All,

    I am unable to open the Task Manager, RegEdit, MsConfig and Command Prompt (from anyways) in my laptop.

    I am able to open all of them in safe mode, but they are not opening in normal mode.

    Please guide.
    Now is the moment, or NEVER!!!

    1) Are you the local admin when attempting? If so, I bet a worm has borked with your LSA settings.
    2) Have you checked the registry for signs of pwnag3 when you're in safe mode?
    Typically this behavoir is related to an infection. I know for sure that W32/Rbot-ANK causes this.

    Go into safe mode and tell me the contents of this hive:
    HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    Or, are you on a company/school etc network with restrictions applied?
