Hey there brusky02, welcome to Geeks To Go Forums.

When you say your task manager is disabled, do you mean it says "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator"

This problem may have been caused by programs like "Folder Lock". But before I can give you the fix. I need to know if this is the error message that is coming up.

Cool :whistling:

first thing i could think off without more info, ei do you get error messages etc?

try pressing "windows key"+"R" (or go to start menu - Run)

then try to run "taskmgr" without the quotationmarks.

Ok there brusky02, goto:

> Start
> Run
> Type this in:

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

Couldnt fit it into 1 line but this should all be inside the run console (Without quotes)

Let me know if this works. Then we can go about re-enabling you regedit

Cool :whistling:
