Task Manager disabled by Administrator

February 2017

If you cannot access the task manager (when you press Ctrl + Alt + Delete, you have the following message: "Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator!"), This trick will allow you to reactivate it. However, it must have an administrator account.

Instructions:

Pull down the menu Start, Run, and type gpedit.msc
  • On some systems (XP home), this program is not installed in this case, download and install it. Open the file, then click on gpedInst.
  • Click User Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, option Ctrl + Alt + Delete
  • Right click on Remove Task Manager, then properties.
  • By default, everything should not be configured. Select Disable or not configured, and OK
  • Restart to save the new settings.

This trick is also disable other applications, such as System Restore, Control Panel, Add and remove programs, and many more!

Disabling the task manager - and other applications - can be the cause of a mistake, but often it is an infection (virus): For sure, scan your system!

Another method you can use, is using a REG fix download here

Run this fix and it will solve the problem automatically!
