Before this, I use Nod32 antivirus (now I’m using Kaspersky 7) to protect my PC from viruses. Although Nod32 is good but my PC was once got infected by a virus and it had remove my Folder Options from the menu. Other than that, it also had disabled my Task Manager.
I thought I can get the Folder Options and the Task Manager back by using Regedit, but this virus is way too smart and it also disabled the Regedit. There is nothing I can do and lastly I format my PC.
But now, there is a way for you to get back the disabled Folder Options, Task Manager, Regedit and some other applications/services. The tool is called Remove Restrictions Tool (RRT). RRT can re-enable all what the virus had previously disabled and I really recommended you to download and keep it in your PC. Next time, if you or your friend’s PC got infected, you can use this tool to remove the restrictions.
Once you have downloaded the tool, boot up the PC in Safe Mode (press F8 when the boot up and choose Safe Mode) and then login into the infected user account. Launch RRT and check the disabled options and click Remove. Finally, restart the PC and the account has back to normal.
