There is a registry key that will disable Task Manager. In many cases the problem is related to spyware, so you should also scan your computer.

Go to Run> Type  regedit.exe

Now navigate down to the following key:


On the right-hand side is a 32-bit REG_DWORD value named DisableTaskMgr with one of two values:

  • 1 – Disable task manager
  • 0 – Enable task manager

Just double-click and change the value, or even delete the key. The change should take place immediately.

You should also try downloading an anti spyware software like Spybot. Before doing the said solution on the first reply in this question. This is a must.

Why you need to do this? It because even if you did the solutions above it will just return to the settings where it disable your task manager. Believe me I already experienced it. So start your web browser now and then search for Spybot search and destroy free download. Scan your computer using this software and then do the solutions on the first reply.

Also you will need an anti virus software to make sure that you have all of the protection needed for your computer.
