This post is all about enabling your Task Manager after it has been disabled. The main cause for the Task Manager getting disabled is the malware attack or other kinds of threat. Follow the procedures below to restore your Task Manager. I know you need that tool for killing the tasks that you do not need manually, but you must be careful not to change anything from your computer!
First, you will want to remove the malware that caused this. Since your Registry Editor is working fine (I assume), just open it and delete the value that disabled the Task Manager. Here is the free procedure below.
- Click the Start Button and type, “Regedit” and then press the enter key.
- If you are using XP, Click Start Button and click “Run” with no quotes then type “Regedit” and press enter
- Browse to HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Microsoft ->CurrentVersion -> Policies ->System
- On the right pane, please delete the value called “Disable Taskmanager” and close the editor.
- Now your Task Manager is back! Please let me know if this does not work by leaving your comments below.
