I am encountering the following problems with my PC (it is a 5 year old Windows XP PC).
1) The task manager is disabled (disabled by administrator is the message I am getting). I searched the net and got the following script for enabling it "REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f". It works temporarily but I have to do it again everytime I want to open taskmanager.
2) I am not able to install any antivirus programs, but I am able to install other programs. I tried Kaspersky, Avast and AVG.
3) My browser suddenly opens some random sites (I am using Mozilla Firefox 3.5.3).
Because of these problems, I reinstalled windows XP after formatting the drive in which I had installed windows earlier (I had installed in D:\). Even then the same problems are still there. I have seen other people also have encountered such problems and the solutions provided in this forum seem to work. Please help me with this.
