To re-enable the Registry Editor (regedit)

Go to your Start>Run and type the following **exactly between and without
the Quotes ("")** and watch out for text wrapping.

"REG ADD HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v
DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"

if you cannot still gain access to regedit then type the following in the
Run > Dialog box **exactly between and without the Quotes ("")** and watch
out for text wrapping.

"REG ADD HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v
DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f"

To re-enable the Task Manger

Scan your system for malware and other parasites. Here are some free
programs.

Adaware SE

Spybot - search and destroy

Trend Micro's Housecall

Once your system is cleaned and free of parasites, open the registry
(Start>Run and type regedit).

Navigate to the following sub key:
HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
In the right-hand pane, locate "DisableTaskMgr" and modify the value to 0.

And Navigate to this following sub key:
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
In the right-hand pane, locate "DisableTaskMgr", if present, and modify the
value to 0.
