Re: Win XP : Task Manager Trouble
When you try to open Task Manager, the following error may occur:
Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator
This error is caused by restrictions placed in Registry. DisableTaskMgr value is set to 1. To enable Task Manager, try any of these methods:
Click Start, Run and type this command exactly as given below: (better - Copy and paste)
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Pol icies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
Download and run this [url=windowsxp.mvps.org/reg/EnableTM.reg]REG fix[/url] and double-click it.
Open Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and navigate to:
HKCU \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies\ System
In the right-pane, double-click DisableTaskMgr and set it's data to 0
Method 4: Using Group Policy Editor - for Windows XP Professional
Click Start, Run, type gpedit.msc and click OK.
Navigate to this path

===> Ctrl+Alt+Delete Options
====> Remove Task Manager
Double-click the Remove Task Manager option.
Set the policy to Not Configured.
