3. Under the section labeled Anti-Virus Protection, take the checkmark out of the Protect against Viruses box.
Anti-Virus Sweep Disabling
1. Click on the Options button on the left hand side of Webroot Anti-Virus
2. On the Sweep tab, put the dot into Custom Sweep (please note you can only disable Anti-Virus Sweeps by using the Custom Sweep option)
3. Under the section labeled Sweep Settings Summary, click the Change Settings link which is next to Custom Sweep Settings
4. A Custom Sweep box will appear with various sections to click on. Click on the What To Sweep button on the left side of this Custom Sweep box.

When ever my system starts icant get any taskbar or desktopitems


Hi !!

If you are experiencing low performance and your task manager is also disabled then most probably your computer is infected by a virus. Update your antivirus and run complete scan. If you are not using any malware or spyware i'll recommend you to install malwarebytes you can download free version from malwarebytes.org and also install good spyware. Hope that helps

Thanks

Windows does not open. task manager is disabled


the easiest way to get taskmanager working is to use Smitfraud fix located here

http://siri.geekstogo.com/

download and run "clean" and when it asks if you want to clean the registry press "Y" for yes this works 95% of the time there will be a side effect where your clock will show military time, to fix go to control panel and select "regional and Langauge" settings (something to that effect) and then go under "regional settings" should be the default tab, click on customize then select the time tab, and under time select the following option ""hh:mm:ss tt""

let me know if u need anymore help

Serious TaskManager Problem!!


Task Manager can be disabled by 2 main ways..
[1] Either there is a virus on your machine--
[2]Or It was manually disabled.
--The 1st solution is to get an anti virus which is up to date and run a virus scan to delete the viruses that maybe present.

--The second solution is that on your START MENU, click on "run".
On 'run' type "gpedit.msc"..
Under the "User Configuration" , click on " Administrative Templates"..
Then you double click on "system" .Double click on "Ctrl+Alt+Del Options"... Double Click on " Remove Task Manager" and click on "Disable"... Click on "Apply" and "Ok"
Your Task Manager should now work !!!
