Start the System Control Panel applet. Select the System Restore tab. Clear the "Turn off System Restore on all drives" check box to enable System Restore, or select this check box to disable System Restore. Click OK.
An alternative to the usual method of enabling and disabling Windows XP's System Restore feature is to use the registry. To use this alternative, perform the following steps: Start the registry editor (regedit.exe).

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore.
If a "DisableSR" value doesn't exist, go to the Edit menu, select New, DWORD value, and create the value.
Set the value to 1 to disable System Restore or 0 to enable System Restore.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\sr to prevent the System Restore service from starting.

Double-click Start, and set the value to 4 to stop the service from starting or to 0 for normal startup. Close the registry editor.

DATAMNGR COORDINATOR HAS ENCOUNTERED


Depending on which level of risk of the Pup.datamngr virus has infiltrated your PC, you might find it is hard to get rid of this sophisticated worm. Some people have successfully cleaned out the stubborn worm, but since one of the primary functions of this virus is to disable security programs,so the method of using anti-virus program is not always a foolproof approach.
Please follow these steps to get rid of Pup.datamngr virus manually:
Step 1: Press CTRL+ALT+DEL or CTRL+SHIFT+ESC. Open the Windows Task Manager.
If that didn't work, try another way. Press the Start button and click on the Run option. This will start the Run tool. Type in taskmgr and press OK. This should start the Windows Task Manager
Step 2: Within the Windows Task Manager click on the Processes tab. Find the process by name. random.exe. Then scroll the list to find required process. Select it with your mouse or keyboard and click on the End Process button. This will kill the process.
Step 3: Delete malicious registry entries.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Active Setup\Installed Components\random
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\Explorer\run\random
Step 4: Remove malicious files of Pup.datamngr virus
C:\windows\system32\services.exe
HKCU\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Ext\Settings\{F34C9277-6577-4DFF-B2D7-7D58092F272F} (PUP.Datamngr)
C:\Program Files\Search Results Toolbar\Datamngr\SRTOOL~1\searchresultsDx.dll (PUP.Datamngr)

Task Manager is disabled. We want to enable the Task manager in my computer


If it (Task Manager) was not disabled by the Administrator (in case your computer is on a network), you can easily enable the it. But you need to know that this could also be done by viruses. As we know, this issue is often created by virus. So I would suggest you to run a full system Scan using an updated antivirus (for this problem, I would recommend you to use Avira free antivirus, you can download it from avirafreeantivirus).

To enable the Task Manager, follow the below instructions:
Click “Start” > “Run” and type in “gpedit.msc” (without qoutes) and press Enter.

Group Policy Editor window will open, once it’s opened, follow the steps by clicking your mouse as labeled here (sequence 1, 2.....):

Once you double click the "Remove Task Manager", another window will pop up, click your mouse as labelled below (Sequence..):

After you are done, close the Group Policy Editor and go check your task manager, hurray, it's working.

But that's the end, the problem may return if your system is infected by virus, so don’t forget to run a Full System Virus Scan using an updated antivirus.


Good luck.

Task manager is disabled by administrator


So your task mananger isn't working, this may be a Virus, or simply some programs error? Anyway, If you have Windows XP Pro, there's a nifty user interface to directly edit the setting you want to repair. Click Start, then click Run and type in gpedit.msc: And press OK. This runs the Group Policy Editor. Once in the Group Policy Editor, expand in turn: User Configuration Administrative Templates System Ctrl+Alt+Del Options You should see the Group Policy Window, Double click on Remove Task Manager to change its setting: It should be enough to click on Not Configured and then OK and Task Manager is available once again. If you don't have Windows XP Pro, then you'll need to edit the registry manually. Click Start, then click Run, type in regedit, and click on OK. Expand these registry keys in turn:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \Software \Microsoft \Windows \CurrentVersion \Policies \System You should see the key DisableTaskMgr in the right hand pane. Right Click on the DisableTaskMgr item: Click on Delete, confirm that you want to delete, and Task Manager should be available once again. One thing to note is that it's quite possible that if you're in an environment managed by a centralized policy, these settings may have no effect. Your IT administrator may set things up so as to disable Task Manager, and other things as well at the domain level. You'll need to ask them if this is the case.

Task manager


Hi,

If you are certain that you are logged on as administrator or has administrator privileges, then a virus is preventing your opening of the Task Manager. Additionally, the same virus is likewise preventing access to the Folder Option and the MSCONFIG function.

Of course the correct solution would be to run a full deep virus scan and delete detected ones. You can also try running RRT.exe to force access to the above functions.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Disabled task manager


try selecting the run option under the start menu. type in "gpedit.msc" and go to User Configuration, then Administrative Templates, next System, and next Ctrl+Alt+Deleve Options. Choose Remove Task Manager and double click the Remove Task Manager option. Disable this, and restart the computer. a shortcut for the task manager is Ctrl+Shift+Esc.

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 !!!
