Once, on a friend’s computer, when I tried to start Task Manager, the following error appeared:
Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator (Task Manager is disabled by your administrator)
What to do if Task Manager is disabled.
The reason for this error may be the following:
1) You are using an account for which task manager is disabled through local or domain group policy.
2) Certain parameters or permissions in the registry block the launch of the task manager.
3) Maybe your system has got a virus or trojan
