I have a XP computer that really got whacked with malware. I have it clean to where you can log in to it as administrator in safe mode. I have to press ctrl-alt-del and run explorer from Task Manager to get a desktop.
When I boot to normal mode I can log in but get no desktop icons. I press ctrl-alt-del to try and run explorer from within Task Manager but I immediately get the message that the administrator has disabled access to Task Manager. I have seen this before. Security on the registry has been hosed.
There is a utility out there called subacl that is suppose to reset the security on the registry back to factory defaults. The problem is that you need to install an msi to get it to run and the installer isn't running is safe mode.
So the question is .... has anyone come out with something different that will run in safe mode that will reset the security on the registry and/or access to Task Manager so I can get to it in enhanced mode?
