How to fix disabled task manager

If your "Task Manager has been disabled by your administration" i have some suggestion to you on how to solve this problem, it was complicated but if follow correctly it was good.

Step 1.  here is the problem image

Disabling Task Manager is one way viruses try to make it harder for you to deal with their infections. Before proceeding any further, you should run a complete and up-to-date anti-virus scan of your machine. It's possible, perhaps even likely, that you've been infected.

Once you come back virus-free, you can proceed with the fix.

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:

Step 2. type gpedit.msc in "RUN"

Step 3.  press OK. This runs the Group Policy Editor.

Once in the Group Policy Editor, expand in turn:

User Configuration

Administrative Templates


Ctrl+Alt+Del Options

You should see something much like this:

Step 4.
Double click on Remove Task Manager to change its setting:

 Step 5. 

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:


• Software

• Microsoft

• Windows

• CurrentVersion

• Policies

Step 6.

Right Click on the DisableTaskMgr item:

Click on Delete, confirm that you want to delete, and Task Manager should be available once again.

Again, try it with your own risk..
