    The obvious question I'll start with is are you an administrator on your computer? Check this by right clicking the Start button. If you see the last 2 lines are Open All Users and Explore All Users the answer is yes. If not, you don't have sufficient privileges as a user . Let me know what you find out.

Your computer infected by virus. many virus did it and you should scan your computer with an uptodate antivirus software. You can also replace task manager function with process explorer here but it will only work in one time execution if the virus still there.
Or if you sure that your computer is clean and have admin ask him to enabled it.
