You might be able to repair Task Manager, but you will not be able to replace it as it is part of the Windows operating system.

 

Please explain what exactly is or is not happening.

You may try the sysinternals process explorer which is more powerful than the original default task manager and is able to replace it

 

Below is the link to Process Explorer

I am not a computer helper and don't even know what i'm doing most of the time but when i saw that you might of run the Reimage program i had to say something.

 

I also ran that program once in hopes of fixing my computer and thats all it took,  from that point on i went through the worst nightmare you could ever imagine .  That program downloaded the Heur Trojan on my system and from what i was told by multiple expert malware removal pros after posting logs etc..it had variants and backdoors involved with it .

 

The vast majority of experts including Kaspersky techs, Major geek techs and yes a tech here said it was very very difficult to eliminate and you had to do it manually.

It seemed to keep showing up regardless of the help i received .

 

I am not saying you got it but if you did,  i feel for ya man, it was hell, and yes i definitely got it from that Reimage program that advertises all over the place  .

Until the issue is resolved...you can use one of these alternative replacements for Windows Task Manager:

My Windows 7 is doing a large backup. I can provide any info about the installed software list. What is happening though is when I try to start task manager nothing happens. It looks like it's trying to start the program but nothing happens. I will send info later.

 

How do I find out if it has a Trojan or a backdoor ?  I can't install any of the recommended software until the backup is finished .I wanted to backup everything before I messed with it too much just in case something goes wrong. Thanks for all the advice .

If you think the problem is malware related then start a new topic in the Am I infected? What do I do? forum. You can post a link to this thread but follow through with checking for and confirming or elimating malware as the culprit before continuing here. Doing that will avoid confusion.
