I was following all of the steps E-bomb gave about how to get rid of the trojan virus that takes over your desktop screen. I followed all of the steps, but once I got to ending the process in the task manager I realized my tsk manager is missing ALL of the tabs at the top to choose from. Therefore I cannot choose the processes tab to end the process. PLEASE HELP me get around this problem becausethe virus hasbeen on my compuer for weeks!

These may the problem with group policy

For enable task manager do the following.

There is a registry hack to enable or disable Windows NT TaskManager. The same registry hack applies to Windows 2000 and Windows XP.
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Value: 1=Enable this key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disable this key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager


Click Start
Click Run
Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
In the Group Policy settings window
Select User Configuration
Select Administrative Templates
Select System
Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
Select Remove Task Manager
Double-click the Remove Task Manager option
And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

Then For enable the folder option

On the left, go to User Configuration.
Then, go to Administrative Templates.
Then, go to Windows Components.
Then, go to Windows Explorer.
Finally, on the right disable the option of "Remove the Folder Options menu item from the Tools Menu".


My problem is the same except that I dont even able to see the system option in admiistrative template. Cant acess the task manager and regedit.
Worked, Thank You!
hi jain,

Your problem is simple as easily fixed.

1. Open the taskmgr by START>RUN>taskmgr.exe
2. Now you have the taskmgr running without tabs.
3. Double-click on the empty upper border of the window.

I found this info at
Worked for me.
WoW! what an easy problem to have fixed! Mine too disappeared after having a virus on my computer and I was thinking I was going to have to reformat my PC or something to get the tabs to show again. Thank goodness! appreciated you posting this, thanks!

Good Answer, Thank for your Ans
halo..why when I start RUN> cannot just a while and I cannot do anything..please help me..
start>run> type gpedit.msc

User Configuration>Administrative templates>system>Ctrl+Alt+Del Options
Double Click on Remove Task manager then click disabled --> on Xp

User Configuration>Administrative templates>system>log ON/OFF
Double Click on Remove Task manager then click disabled --> on Win2000

then try again the task manager
this solution doesn't work... task manager on gpedit.msc is already disabled... + my regedit is also f***** up... registry editing has been disabled by your administrator.
i also tried to enable it and then disable it again... nothing works. what now? I can't find any virus on my system

I have a very serious problem .Please provides me its solution. Both of my TASK MANAGER & REGEDIT (REGISTRY EDITOR) enabled & when I type on Start->Run REGEDIT to open REGISTRY EDITOR & want to check it then message come & computer will Restart. & same for TASK MANAGER. From internet I check & find many solution for both but when I implement for one moment TASKMANAGER option show enable , When I click on it to see Processes it give same above message & computer Rrstart . I think there are some very harmful virus which disabled them .I have installed AVG latest verson but it does not catch virus which disabled both TaskManager & Regedit .So please provide me its better solution if you have. I apply this solution & many others from net but all can not solve this problem.

Hey, I have same error for regedit and Task manager thing.. but someone gotta help me, When I got to Admisntrative Templates I find system then I click on it, I find 3 things only.. doesn't Inculde any of stuff like that you say like " Ctrl+Alt+Delete" Option
Just Download "Smart Virus Remover.exe"
it is a little software of size 4kb.
folder option,taskmanager disable....very this will be alright.
Even can remove virus like autorun.inf from ur Flash drives.
Use malwarebytes antimalware to scan
It will remove the infection :)
It could just be that your task manager is running in "quiet mode" or whatever. It freaked me out. Cusser is right about this one - if you have no tabs, just try double clicking on the grey bar at the top of the task manager.

Could be something else. Sounds like it for GoingInsane

Download, install and run Malwarebyte which you can find on this site:

Ensure you make an update.

Please request a FULL system scan, which may take about 90 minutes.

When the scan is completed, delete all items found.
i have the task manager listed with image names like xq8i.exe,vrt27 and many such files .i have virus in my when I tried to delete all those files I receive a warning message that this will cause system instability ..can I just give endprocess will that effect my pc.

I would not recommend your solution, but would proceed with a non destructive system restore or disinfection with Combofix
