Task Manager Error when pressing Ctrl+Alt+Del

I have a problem with my windows xp, when I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, it says "Task Manager has been disable by your administrator". I already tried working my way through the Registry Editor to enable it but still nothing happens, it just go back to the way it is in just 3 to 5 seconds. Same when I enter this code on run:

REG add HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

Is there any way other than reformatting my PC to solve this problem?

it might be the admin who really want to disable it, so ask him or accidentally disabled. if not then it might be affected by some viruses, scan your PC with anti-virus software to fix it. if not viruses then try open the registry editor, "Start Menu", then "Run", then type "regedit", then find the "DisableTaskMgr" DWORD type and delete it. or you can try this code in "run" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurr entVersionpoliciessystem], Delete the line > "DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000. if its done by your group policy settings, then try this "Start Menu" > "Run" > type "gpedit.msc" > "User Configuration" > "Administrative Templates" > "system" > "CTRL+ALT+DEL options" > remove task manager.

Hello Dear,

Thanks for sharing your problem with us.
 
Dear this is very common error. It is a virus attack and this virus effects not only the task manager but also disables the windows registry. Try this "Start Menu" > "Run" > type "gpedit.msc"  > "User Configuration" > "AdministrativeTemplates" > "system" > " CTRL + ALT + DEL options " > remove task manager. Reconfigure remove task manager by double clicking on it.
 
A settings dialog box will open. Choose "Disable" and ok. You can recopy this file, but it will replace again at each system start up. If you want to re copy this file then make these steps.
 
1. Go to the folder C:WINDOWSServicePackFilesi386 and then right-click on task manager file from it and select Copy.
2. Open the folder C:WINDOWSSystem32 and then right-click from it and select Paste.
 
It will open task manage twice or thrice but when you will restart your computer it can create a problem again. This problem can be overcome by reinstalling windows.
I hope it will help you.
Thanks
