    Hi, I'm not sure if this is where I should post this.
    I've recently reinstalled Windows XP onto my computer and since doing so when ever is pres Ctrl-Alt-Del I get a message "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator"
    Now I'm the only user on the computer and are set as the administrator, so how do I remove that from there?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Try this - number 51 (right) "Enable the Task Manager". Save the file (.reg) where it is easily found and double click on it to merge into the Registry. You may want to export a copy of your Registry before doing this so that you can roll back - Start/Run/type in "regedit" (without quotes)/File/Export. Name your file and make sure the dot is in"All". Double click on that file to replace your Registry should you need to. Delete if not.

    Welcome to TSG thommo77 :)

    If that suggestion doesn't work, let us know. You could also have a virus.
