Start  > Run > gpedit.msc {enter}

Navigate to  > User Config\Admin Templates\System\Prevent Access To registry Editing Tools

Set it to  "Not Configured" and reboot the server

NOTE this may be set iin group policy (though if its the result of a virus I greately doubt it) it the problem persistas post back :)

kennycpu,
or run this reg file

You could try unlocking the registry with this reg file: Just log on as administrator.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"DisableRegistryTools"=dword:00000000
