    I went to go and check some processes in Task Manager and when I did I received the following message, " Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator". I'm not to sure how this came about or happend..as I'm the administrator. I checked MS website under the Knowledge Base and couldn't find anything..and also did a search on here. Thanks in Advance

    if you are virus free then open registry editor [Regedit.exe] and go to: [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    set "DisableTaskMgr" data to 0
