Unable to open TaskMgr, MsConfig, CMD, and regedit
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.
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.
