Hi,

You may try these two links and run the SDFix tool on your computer. Your computer is infected with a Trojan/Spyware/Virus.

Alternatively you may try running the SuperAntispyware, which you can get from www.superantispyware.com

Hope this would resolve the issue you are facing.

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

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.

My task manager has been disabled due to virus attack. help me

There is a registry hack to enable or disable Windows NT TaskManager. The same registry hack applies to Windows 2000 and Windows XP. Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1=Enablethis key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disablethis key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

As part of the enhanced management available in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, rather than risking a registry change, as an administrator you can enable or disable Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro's TaskManager using Group Policy Editor. This can be applied to the local policy. Note: if you are trying to override your organizations group policy, you can't. As soon as you re-authenticate to the domain, the domain or OU Group Policy will rewrite the registry setting. But if the TaskManager was accidently disabled or you need to control this item for a set of standalone boxes this is for you:
  • Click Start
  • Click Run
  • Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
  • In the Group Policy settings window
    • Select User Configuration
    • Select Administrative Templates
    • Select System
    • Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
    • Select Remove Task Manager
    • Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

Task manager disabled by the administrator

Hi,

To regain access to your Task Manager and Folder Options, the quickest remedy for the moment would be to download and run RRT.exe. It is "Remove Restriction Tool" and available here.

For Anti-Virus, you can try AntiVir by Avira available here. Additionally, you may want to download and install Lavasoft's Ad-Aware here. Upon download, install and update. Thereafter run a full scan. Pls follow on screen instructions.

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.

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.
