Wnidows server 2008 R2-- Direct shutdown / not displaying taskbar or any icons on desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm using windows server 2008 standard R2 trail version. My electrician to resolve some switch issue plugged out server pin, due to which server was shut down directly. Now when I restarted it normally its just showing a blank desktop without task-bar and icons, I tried running task manager but its showing error (Task Manager is Disabled by your Administrator). I tried logging in through safe mode but its automatically rebooting when i try doing so. My application is running fine on other clients. Not getting any solution. Please provide some genuine solution.

  • Hi,

    This issue is mentioned in following article:

    "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator" error message


    If you could enable Run with Win+R, try to add the registry keys with command line such as:

    REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
