    I have tried several times to do this but to no avail. I have pop-up bocker turned off..and still do not get that pop-up prompt.

    When I change the name blue cube.

    Maybe I'm copying the info text wrong!

    I copied the info (user & machine) together with spaces in between...nothing, I've tried to copy them seperately but they wont go to the note pad...are both texts supposed to run together as one line?

There are multiple ways to tweak your registry to turn it back. here are, maybe, the simple way.
1. copy follow code (between lines but not to include the lines) into your Notepad:



2. save it, for example name it as "abc.txt"

3. rename "abc.txt" to "abc.reg". if you successful rename it. you will see the file icon changes to like a blue magic cube with a paper behind it.

4. double click your "abc.reg". you should get a pop up ask you " Are you sure you want to add the information in xyz(the file path)\abc.reg to the registry? " with Yes and No button. please click yes

5. click OK on this information pop up. You should be all set.

My task manager doesn't work anymore can u help me fix this?

Try this:

If Task Manager has been disabled, you can re-enable it if you have administrator privileges on the computer.
To enable Task Manager on a computer running Windows Vista Home Basic or Windows Vista Home Premium This procedure requires you to edit the registry. An incorrect change to your computer's registry could render your computer inoperable. We strongly recommend that you back up the registry before making any changes. For more information, see Back up the registry.
  1. Open the Registry Editor by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, typing regedit into the Search box, and then pressing ENTER. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b.png If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  2. Navigate to the following location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
  3. Double-click System, double-click DisableTaskMgr, change Value data to 0, and then click OK.
To enable task Manager on a computer running other editions of Windows Vista
  1. Click the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, type gpedit.msc in the search box, and then press ENTER.
  2. Under User Configuration, double-click Administrative Templates.
  3. Double-click System, and then click Crtl+Alt+Del Options.
  4. Double-click Remove Task Manager, click Disabled, and then click OK.
or you're computer might be infected by a virus, if you're not the one who disabled the task manager.

Try to scan your computer also.

Problem about task manager

open the task manger
select view
select CPU
choose a graphic for the CPU
if you have dual CPU, you need a setup for each CPU.

as far as OS serial key. the windows Xp or newer OS detect the machine model. (manufacture embedded the comparability hardware serial.) then you can just activate the OS online.
THe older machine must have a legal copy of the OS. activation is not possible if the OS is counterfeit.

My task manger is disabled by the administrator

For Windows XP Home Edition use "The registry edit & For Windows XP Professional you still use the option I had suggested which is:

• Click Start
• Click Run
• Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
• In the Group Policy settings window
o Select User Configuration
o Select Administrative Templates
o Select System
o Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
o Select Remove Task Manager
o Double-click the Remove Task Manager option

I hope this Info has helped you.

Click Start -> Run. Type in "regedit" (no quotes) and hit Enter.

Search for HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies \ System.

Look for: DisableTaskMgr. Click on REG_DWORD. Value: 1=Enable this key (disables TaskManager); Value: 0=Disable (actually enables TaskManager)

Close RegEdit

Reboot your machine.
