Default Serious Issues

I have kind of a big problem. For some reason msconfig, task manager, and regedit will not run on my account. I am running xp pro. All the stuff works on the other two accounts on the computer though. It says that it has been disabled by the administrator. But I am the one who set up the accounts, and I am the only one in the house who knows how to do alter the settings. I did not do it, and they do not know how, which means something else did it. The guys over at the SWI forums told me it sounded like I have been hijacked, so I tried everything I know how to do, asked a friend of mine, and nothing. I have tried Adaware, NoAdware, HijackThis, BPS Spyware/Adware remover, CWShredder, Norton, and Spybot, but nothing has been able to fix it. I even went into the GPEdit setting and tried to find the problem, but could not. Can someone help me?

how do I edit the specific permisssions? I tried to recreate the account, and it still did not work for me, I even deleted all the files once trying to fix it, and no luck.

Login as one of the administrator accounts
go to "users" under control panel ->
select the username with this problem and then "properties" ->
then under Group Membership you can select "Other" and then "Administrators"
