Hi There :thumbsup:

I have read your post and I think it would be wise for you to post a HijackThis log for an expert to review. Firstly let's try and restore the taskmanager.

We need to backup the registry before making changes in case it becomes corrupt during the fix we are able to complete. I like this simple approach to backing up the registry.

1. Click Start /Run and type in "regedit" (no quotes).

2. Next, click the File menu, Export

3. Select a location from the resulting box and give your backup registry a
name. Something like:

Regbackup 02-18-2006. <-- I just put todays date.

:flowers: Just a quick note: by default, Windows backs up the registry when you shut down your machine. The above is probably best used for those (like myself) who are editing registry settings, such as we are about to do!

Then open notepad and and copy and paste next bold in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00)

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"**del.DisableTaskMgr"=" "


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Save this as "fix.reg" Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.

It should look like this: Posted Image

Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

Now reboot and see if your taskmanager is back

Then I recommend you follow the HijackThis preparation guide which can be found here. It is important that you follow the guide closely. A number of scans will be run which may well fix your problem.

As the guide says, after you have completed the scans that are recommended, please post your "HijackThis" log in a new topic in the forum found here. Please add your system infomation and also what problems you are having. Please be patient, and a HJT team member will help you to clean up your system

Let me know how all goes...
