I recently went to do the "three finger salute" and I got a message saying

"Task Manager Has Been disabled By your Administrator"

Funny thing is I never disabled it. :thumbsup: I don't even know how to do that!

First be aware that many forms of spyware attempt to prevent removal by disabling utilities like Taskmanager that could be helpful in removing them. Please visit the excellent malware section of this forum and follow all the advice for assuring that your system is clean. If the self-help section is not enough you will need to post a HijackThis log for analysis. Please follow the posted instructions for that as well. No one likes bad news, but It sounds to me like you've got a trojan.

If, on the otherhand, you've only been making changes to your account and modifying 'Services" and other settings, please post back and let us know. Any new applications installed just before you noticed the problem? Changes to Themes? More details would be helpful. System specs, Security programs, etc.

"Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator"

This involves making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.
