Admin ID hacked and new one created in XP.

Hi,
My new laptop with XP installed got hacked by a hacker installing/
creating another admin account. I tried deleting it through the
original admin account but no success.

Each time I boot up, a script runs and the new admin user
(BatamHacker) is created.

In addition to that if I go to "RUN" and type "REGEDIT" the computer
logs me off.....

Appreciate any help to resolve this...

Thanks
TJ

You can recover the use of regedit.exe by the following dodge.

Copy regedit.exe (or regedit32.exe) from the Windows\system32 folder, and
paste it

into C:\
Rename this file to myregedit.exe, copy it, and paste it back into
Windows\system32
Now it functions just as regedit, from Run command or double-click in
Explorer.

I do this as standard on my PCs at home when they come out of the box.
