    From last couple of days, I am consistently getting error "Windows Task Manager has stopped working" when trying to open Task Manager in windows 7. I have already used SFC/scan now process along with antiviruses as well but nothing seems working for me. Do you have any idea,What is happening with my computer. Is there any solution of this issue?

    This kind of issue occurs due to some corrupted file system or the effect of either malware,virus or trojan. Before doing anything special just run your antivirus and antispyware. Install the windows update,if possible.After that boot into safe mode and open command prompt as Administrator. Now type "SFC/Scannow". It will solve your issue.
    If the issue still persists then you can solve this issue by editing your system registry. Just navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TaskManager and rename "TaskManager" to "TaskManager.OLD". Now your registry will look like-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\TaskManager.OLD. Check whether it works or not.

    Hi Friend,

    >> You are getting error "Windows Task Manager has Stopped Working" in windows 7.

    >> It is because Task manager is not working well.

    >> Some Damage or Virus affected the task manager.

    >> It is also possible that Task Manager becomes corrupted.

    >> Scan the whole system with the updated antivirus.

    >> Repair the exe of taskmanager to make it stable.

    >> Also repair other system files to prevent system crash.

    I Hope you will understand.

    All The Best.
