Hi hendaz...

If you are running Vista on this machine, try this:

Click on Start, then Run, type gpedit.msc and click "Ok". (Continue)

In the Group Policy Object Editor window, in the left pane, expand (click +) "User Configuration"...then expand "System". Click on "Ctrl+Alt+Del Options". In the right pane, double click on "Remove Task Manager". In the window that opens, tick the button next to "Disabled" and Apply the change.

Disabling the Remove Task Manager setting actually enables the Task Manager.

Let me know if this helps.
