Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional
When I press Ctrl+Alt+Del instead of task manager appearing it displays an error "Task manager disabled by the administrator" and the computer restarts automatically. I've done going to gpedit.msc and changing the settings but all seems to be fine. I cannot run my regedit so there is no point in messing with the registries and my cmd disappears when I try to run it. I think this problem is getting worse so any helps will be greatly appreaciated.
welcome to Fixya,
you have a virus that name brontox if I'm not mistaken.
update or upgrade your anti virus. and free upgraded anti virus can help, like AVG 8.0
but your have big problem because when the anti virus trigger the dos mode it will automatically shut down your PC. like when you open your task manager or run the command prompt. so try this thing out and what happen.
