    Not able to find anyway to Open Task Manager in windows 7

    I am a newbie and just started using Computer. I have recently purchased a PC which came with Window 7 OS. I have never used windows 7 but have an experience with windows XP. I was able to use the Task Manager there to stop a program from running. Here also,i can see the same option but when i try to open it, it shows an error message “Administrator has disabled the Task Manager”. What does it mean and how to fix it?

    It means that someone has disabled the Task Manager in your windows 7 computer. Sometimes,it happens due to an action of virus or any other third party program. If you haven’t changed any settings then follow the below given procedure to enable the Task Manager:

    Re: Not able to find anyway to Open Task Manager in windows 7

    you might have heard about enabling it through regedit or gpedit.msc

    what will you do if the same problem arises again. here is the solution from my side

    Open notepad
    copy the code which is below

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\System]
    “DisableTaskMgr” =dword:00000000


    Save the file as enable task manager.reg
    click save

    Now double click on the file and run it
    system will ask you for confirmation, click "yes"

    now your task manager is enabled.


    happy to help you

    Start windows 7.

    Click Start orb,
    In the search box type gpedit.msc,
    Under User Configurations, double click Administrative Templates,
    Double click System, click Ctrl+Alt+Del option,
    Double click Remove Task Manager, click Enable, click OK.

    This will enable task manager once more which is now disabled by administrator.
