"Task manager has been disabled by your administrator"

Posted: 10-05-2003, 03:00 AM
Hey, I seem to have a problem where if i press
ALT+CTRL+DEL a message comes up saying that my "Task
manager has been disabled by your administrator" but the
only problem is that I am the administrator. This all
happened after I visited some nasty site that tried to
download a virus or trojan on my computer or something,
ever since then i havent been able to access my task
manager. Can anyone please help me???

Click Start, Run and enter REGEDIT Go to:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\System

Look in the right pane for a value called DisableTaskMgr. If its there, it
should be set to 0 (zero). If not, double click the DisableTaskMgr value and
set it to 0. If it doesn't exist, right click in the right pane, select
New, DWord value and name it DisableTaskMgr. Leave it at 0.
