Hallo... i am the admin.. n did not disble it...
How to enable it???
haha.. that's exactly the same virus i encountered when trying to install norton IS 2007 on one of the notebooks in my company today. I didn't suspect the presence of a virus until the installer abruptly ended with the message "registry setting has been disabled by the administrator". Good thing for the existence of online scanning tools as i was able to run a scan using pandasoft's free online scanner. This software manage to detect the virus you stated. By the way the virus is W32/trunix.a.worm. This virus also infected the pendrive i used when trying to install norton. This virus travels mostly through portable media and spreads by posing as a flash player update.
Even after clearing the virus the registry was still inaccessible. I however managed to solve it by finding a INF installer from symantec used for a virus with similar properties. The remnants (missing files error after reboot) was solved by clearing it out of the registry.
maybe you're using a power user account that's why your system got infected with that virus.
I suggest that you create a limited account on your PC and use that account when you get online. or use a P2P and don't forget to use a firewall..i use is the Zone Alarm. i know this is simple but this is one step ahead against hackers and viruses.
btw, don't leave your administrator account with an empty password because some people do.
yea, u shud downgrade to a limited user account, and access your admin account only when u nid to install or update stuff... it helps to reduce the damage and deny certain viruses from infecting ur computer.
