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.
