    Why doesnt Regedit Work!?

    All of a sudden my regedit doesnt work on my computer. When i got to run... and type regedit it runs for about .5 seconds and then closes. What is up with that?

    Naturally I didn't feel inspired enough to read all the links for you, since I already slaved away for long hours under a blistering sun pressing the search button after typing four whole words! - Quzah

    Virus maybe? Something trying to prevent you from deleting its entries in the registry (self-defense mechanism)? lol... who knows... Or maybe your computer's just going crazy I know mine is, it found around 3200 errors on the harddrive when I booted up earlier...
    Just Google It. √

    This, I believe, what one of the "features" of MSBlast, can't remember for sure. It is DEFINATLY caused by a few viruses out there though.

    Does it work in safe mode?

    why not just use a third party registry editing tool to look for bad stuff?

    btw we still need to know what windows version it is in case it's not a virus.
