Recently we had a blackout of power here. I dont know if it has anything to do with why the task manager is no longer working, but it was fine before the power outtage. I keep getting, "Task manager has been disabled by your admin". Could someone please help me enable it again. I looked in the Windows help file and there is just an overview of it. I run WinXP Home. Please help me. THNX :tazz:

start > run
regedit
<enter>

navigate to
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

in the right pane, do you see DisableTaskMgr?

If so, right click and delete it

Note: This is often a case when you are infected with malware. I suggest a visit to the Malware forum

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .

That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.
