Hello,
Now I have a problem with my Task Manager On Windows XP

I currently had a virus, now everytime I try to open Task Manager I can't

There is No Warning box Either, Just that it doesnt open.

I've tried using the registry edit, and it turns out that, that wasn't the problem.
I am an Administrator, Tried opening in Safe mode.
And restarted my computer multiple Times.

I've looked into my System32 Folder and didnt find the Task Manager Icon there.

Can anybody help me with this problem??

A program called explorer.exe controls the display of your taskbar and desktop icons. If for some reason it goes missing (you may have killed it using Task Manager, for example, or something more sinister like a virus has deleted it from your processes), then try this first:

1. Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click Task Manager).
2. On the Applications tab, click New Task at the bottom right of the window.
3. Type explorer.exe, then click OK.

If nothing sinister caused it to disappear, it should all come back as it was and you can stop panicking, breathe a sigh of relief, and continue working.

If that doesn’t work, then try this:

1. Open Task Manager (press Ctrl+Alt+Del, then click Task Manager).
2. Go to the Processes tab.
3. Click on the Image Name column header to sort the list alphabetically.
4. Find all explorer.exe processes — select each, then click End Process for each one.
5. On the Applications tab, click New Task at the bottom right of the window.
6. Type explorer.exe, then click OK.
You didnt even get the purpose of probably didnt even read the story.

The Problem is Task Manager Won't even open.

Read it again please.
