Every time I try to run command prompt it says "The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator." It says that even though I AM the administrator. Even when I change the registry value and re-enable it, when I turn it off and then back on I still get "The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator." I have even tried group policy editor;I set prevent access to the command prompt it to disabled and the back to not configured and even keeping the setting on disabled, it worked at first, but when I turned my computer off and the back on I still got "The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator." Any help appreciated.

have you tried disabling the settings in the registry and the group policy, seeing if you can get a command prompt immediately thereafter, and then after restart check to see if something has reset those settings back to enabled? perhaps you have a logon script or some 3rd party software (possibly virus/spyware) that may be changing these settings automatically back. sometimes malware does this kind of thing to place roadblocks/try and prevent you from removing itself. most people don't know what a command prompt is until they are trying to remove a virus... if that is the case, it is a good possibility they will have some trouble understanding group policy and registry as well, lol.
