task manager RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.  I don't really know too much about computers, but I often have to use windows task manager to "end task" when something "isn't responding".  I'm not sure how it happened, but when I tried to access task manager today, it's no longer available to click on...and when I went to the help & support ctr & tried to open it that way, I got the error msg: "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator.", which is TOTALLY blowing my mind, because this is my personal computer and nobody else has used it in months!!  Please tell me what I did wrong, or what I have to do to allow myself access to this function again.  I am the only user (besides a limited guest account) and have administrator status.  Thank you, in advance, for your help.

  • Sir, it's a Virus has been stopped your Task Manager here is  a solution :

     

    (1) Start --> Run... --> msconfig ---> Startup --> Disable All --> Ok --> Restart Your Computer.

     

    (2)  Start --> Run... --> gpedit.msc --> User Configuration / Administrative Templates / System / Ctrl+Alt+Delete Options / Remove Task Manager

    • Double-click theRemove Task Manageroption.
    • Set the policy toNot Configured.

     

    if 2 steps doesn't work for you try Registry Also.

     

    Create a NotePad file Copy these Code:

     

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    "DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000
     
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    "DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000

    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system\]
    "DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000
     
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    "DisableCAD"=dword:00000000

     

     

    Save it As  taskmanager.reg , make sure file are saved as .reg , and double click on it , and click on Yes, then Restart your machine.

     

    Regards,
