Ok, first of all, are you logged into the machine as an administrator?

Have you tried uninstalling and re-installing windows media player?

For HiJackThis logs, you need to post your log at the following site to have it analyzied:

Hello beckyfildes =)

Are they Disabled or Disappearing after u open them ??
coz if they are Disabled then its the permission problem, are u sure u are logged in as Administrative Account ??
check here,

Error Message: "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator"
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/Taskmanager_error.htm

Registry Editing has been disabled by your administrator
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/tweakuirest.htm

and if they are Disappearing, then its due to viruses !!
look here,

Why does Task Manager, MSCONFIG, or REGEDIT disappear while opening?

ive pasted the text into 'RUN' it works but then defaukts back to showing the error message. I'm logged in as an administrator. I've tried registry mechanic it changed nothing (was that worth doing?) I've got another computer that runs fine is there anyway to compare settings? i also have sophos antivirus should i run that?

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Mike] c:\WINDOWS\Fonts\lsass.exe    
Nasty   The entered application Mike was identified: lsass. Hit rate: 29 % (result)   Must be fixed!

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [stella] c:\WINDOWS\Fonts\lsass.exe    
Nasty   The entered application stella was identified: lsass. Hit rate: 47 % (result)   Must be fixed!

 c:\WINDOWS\Fonts\lsass.exe    
Nasty   running process. (lsass.exe)
This process is not running from the System32 folder as it is supposed to be.   This entry is not running from the System32 folder, so it is probably nasty.

O7 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System, DisableRegedit=1    
Nasty   Such entries should be fixed as a general rule.   To be fixed immediately!

Check these lines and clcik on Fix Checked !!
and then delete these nasty files manually from safemode !!
delete ONLY the files which are present above, dont delete the original lsass.exe which is present in C:\Windows\System32 !!
