Go to Kellys Korner, make sure you are using Internet Explorer, the links to download don't work correctly in Firefox. Read the instructions at the top of the page, then scroll down to #113, click on "Enable" and follow the instructions you read at the beginning. You may want to head over to the Malware section to make sure you have a clean PC.

Hello,

I recently had the same problem because of a virus and did the following and it worked like a charm!

1. Go to Start
2. Click on Run
3. Copy and paste this into the run field (must be exactly as shown):

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

4. Policies should be altogether but for some reason when I post this there is a space
5. Click OK

Black box will appear briefly - after it's gone - try opening your Task Manager again :-)
