    One of my computers is running WinXP Home Edition, and today when i wen to try and goto task manager by right clicking on the task bar and Task Manger was un-clickable, then i ctrl-alt-del to go to it and it said that Task Manger had been disabled by my administrator, but the issue is i am the administrator, and it is not controlled by my domains security policy. I have never tampered with this computer, what is wrong?
