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.
Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1=Enable this key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disable this key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

then->

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

Start->Run->"gpedit.msc"
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".

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 https://www.onecomputerguy.com/windowsxp_tips.htm
Worked for me.

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

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Use this registery key to enable Windows Task Manager

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.https://www.raymond.cc/blog/restore-task-manager-regedit-and-folder-options-disabled-by-virus/

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

Hello

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

https://ccm.net/download/download-105-malwarebytes

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