Are you saying that you can't access the Task Manager using the CTRL+ALT --> DELETE key combination?

I also have the same problem at the moment. And yes it is when I do ALT+CRTL+DELETE.

I get an error message saying "Task Manager has been disabled by your Administrator".

It is my home PC and I am the administrator. This event also co-incides with a virus I recently had. I have AVG and Zone Labs virus and firewall things running but it still managed to get in.

The virus files were boot.inx and kernel64.exe (the kernel one had a prefetch also). I managed to delete both with Kill Box and I haven't had an AVG block alert since. However I still can not access task manager.

Any help would be most appreciated.

Yours

I just fixed the problem on my PC using one of the links suggested in another posters thread.

I downloaded the file for "Enable the Task Manager" and saved it to the WINDOWS/SYSTEM32 directory where the system Taskmgr.exe file is located.

So far so good. Hope this helps

Cheers
Corin
