Hi Scott,

Yesterday a friend of mine plugged a jump drive in my PC that was infected with SSVICHOSST.exe virus. I had Antivir antivirus installed and later I had to update it to Kapersky, though also that didn't help. SSVICHOSST.exe disabled the Registry Editor and Windows Task Manager. When you tried to press Ctrl+Alt+Del, Windows Task Manager could not open. Yet the day before they were working perfectly. In somecases it also goes ahead and disables also start>Run...>cmd.

This is how I managed to fix the problem:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
#1. Since it disabled the Registry. I'd to first enable the Registry by using the gpedit.msc:

* Click User Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>Prevent access to registry editing tools -In the Right Pane>Disable>Ok

#2. When I tried to Click Start>Run>regedit, the Registry Editor opened.

#3. Since I could now access the registry. I wanted to delete SSVICHOSST.exe from the WinLogon shell:

=============================================

a) HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SOFTWARE>Microsoft>Windows NT>CurrentVersion> Winlogon
b) In the right pane, locate the entry: Shell = "Explorer.exe %System%\SSVICHOSST.exe"
c) Right-click on the value name and choose Modify.
d) Change the value data of this entry to: Explorer.exe
e) Press Ok
f) Close Registry Editor.

==============================================
