Click Start, Run and type this command exactly as given below: (better - Copy and paste)

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

If that doesn't work chances R U've been infected/disabled by a virus.....Download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. It's Freeware. This program will detect viruses and malware that most Anti-Malware programs don't. By the way, Norton is not the best program out there. I recommend AVGFree myself. U can download it 4 free at Download.com..................Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!
