My issue is that I can't run task manager in windows 2000. When ctrl-alt-del is pressed, task manager is an option, but pressing it brings me back to windows screen. typing taskmgr into run gives me a quick flash of a cmd prompt but back to windows screen. SHIFT-CTRL-ESC does the same thing. I have searched the web and tried as many of the fixes as I could with failure each step:

gpedit.msc does not have a subfolder userconfiguration/administrative templates/system/ctrl+alt+del options ... or anything similar so i am unable to unconfigure the remove task manager option

tried to go to hkey-current-user and turn of disable taskmanager from software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\policies\system however system was not a folder there. i even tried to create the folder and then create the reg_dword type DisableTaskMgr with a value of 0 did not help

rebooted....rebooted in safe mode...made sure i was in admin access...tried to do it under user access

thank you again for your help

i also am unable to open mcafee security center. I get the same issue of a cmd screen flashing and returning me to windows screen

Sorry for what seems to be a duplicate post, but I was told to remove the hijack this log and repost in the windows2000 forum.

That would be me

He was told he could not post a log in this forum
He decided he would rather post in this forum than in HJT

I am sure the computer had some types of viruses. I removed the enterprise suite and others, but now still can't ge tthe task manager to run. is there a way to download windows 2000 to reinstall or fix it? the user also had many many many (get the point?) files stored on her desktop. I know I need to move them off the desktop before installation or I will lose them. Are there any other folders that I need to be aware of?
