hi there guys. i am having some problems with my task manager. i can't seem to open it. and everytime i try.. an error shows up saying that my task manager has been disabled by the administrator.. i wasn't doing anything when that happened. i was only copying some pictures from a digicam. then that error showed up. then when i restarted the computer another error showed up. it said that rvhost.exe cannot be found.

im running windows xp pro sp2, AMD Athlon(tm) 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 5000+ 2.60 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM, Radeon X1550 Series.

thank you in advance for your help. and hope to hear from you guys soon. Godbless.

Howdy,

You could post your HijackThis log and see if anything shows up


Download HijackThis to your desktop
  • Double click on HJTSetup.exe on your Desktop
  • Click Run and Install
  • It will install to Program files by default
  • it will launch Hijack This
  • Click on "scan system and save a logfile" usually in notepad
  • Copy and Paste the logfile in your next post
  • Using Ctrl+A to copy All and Ctrl+C to copy and Ctrl+V to paste.

yes i remember deleting something.. it happened when i inserted my aunts video camera via usb.. i wanted to copy videos from our family reunion last week.. when i inserted the videocam via usb my antivirus alerted me that there are some problems with the G: drive (videocam drive) my friend told me to click delete and then ok on the antivirus.. the problem continued for like 8 times so i deleted it 8 times too.. after that it stopped.. but when i tried to open my task manager i noticed that a message came up that said that my task manager has been disabled by the administrator. there is no one else that uses this computer so i don't know what happened. hope you can help me. thank you!

>megabite- i did what you told me to do. i sent a request for my thread to be moved to the security section. can you please tell me waht are those suspicious entries in my log? and could they have caused the problems with my computer?

Heres a Simple Solution for your problem.
Remember to set a system restore point before making any changes.
The situation's pretty simple. If you right click on the clock in the Windows taskbar, the Task Manager item is grayed out:
Or, if you try to run taskmgr.exe manually, you get this message:
So, how did this happen?
As we'll see in a moment, there are settings you can access as an administrator that would allow you to disable and enable Task Manager in this way.
You didn't do that, you say?
Then a virus probably did.
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:
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 something much like this:
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 something similar to this:
Right Click on the DisableTaskMgr item:
Click on Delete, confirm that you want to delete, and Task Manager should be available once again.

Also Download SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes and perform a "FULL SCAN" and see if anything comes out.
