Enable Task Manager disabled by Administrator or Virus©

Windows Task Manager is used to view details about processes running on 

your computer. Since it can be used to terminate programs that are 

misbehaving or are viruses disguised in the form of harmless programs, most 

spyware and viruses disable it to prevent themselves from being closed 

through it. Some administrators also disable Task Manager to prevent users 

from closing important security programs like antiviruses and anti-malwares.

In such situations, running the Task Manager will give the "Task Manager 

has been disabled by Administrator" error. However, there are some 

techniques you can use to re-enable task manager and close those harmful 

programs manually. This article contains few such simple techniques you can 

use to regain access to Task Managing privileges.

Enable Task Manager from Registry in Windows 8, 7, XP or Vista

Registry Editor is an inbuilt Windows tool that is used to modify registry keys 

which tell Windows how it should work. A simple registry modification can be 

used to bypass the Task Manager block. To do so, just follow the steps:-

Windows Vista, go to Search.

Editor is also disabled, you will first need to enable registry editing.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\ Windows\ Current 

Version\Policies\System. If the System key is not there, you will need to 

create it.

Step 4:-In the work area, locate "DisableTaskMgr". If this value is not there, 

you will need to create a new DWORD value called DisableTaskMgr. Double 

click on it. A window will pop up.

Step 5:- Enter its value data as 0 and press OK, Close the Registry Editor. If 

Task Manager is still disabled, restart your computer.

Method Two>>Enable Task Manager from Group Policy Editor (Gpedit.msc)

settings. It can also be used to enable Task Manager.

Step 3:-Navigate to this path Configuration>Administrative 

Templates>System>Ctrl+Alt+Del Options.
