View Full Version : Task manager
10-14-2005, 06:58 PM
Ok I need help with this on. I just updated to winXP SP2 and the task manager is now been disabled by my admin. How do I re-enable it? I'm the admin on this PC and I didn't disable it. I assume that it is because of SP2. Can anyone help?

Well SP2 sucks. :P
I didn't upgrade for those obivious reasons. Hopefully Longhorn will be better

I tryed that, the site has nothing and I've been unable to find anything in the CP that has anything to do with the task manager.
I'm with shadowclone. SP2 only screws stuff up.

Well that didnt happen to me. Anyway try the following:
-->Reboot your pc in Safe mode by:
Reboot and before you see the Windows Logo, but after the BIOS screen, press F8 (press it a few times just to be sure). Choose from the menu, Boot In Safe Mode (with networking if you wish)
-->When it loads you'll see that is one extra account, usually called Administrator and usually without a password. Log on with it (if you can)
-->Check now if the task-manager is working now. If it is, then you are in the right account. Then go into User Accounts and poke around a bit.
I dont know if this will help you, cause like i said i didnt hava this problem before. Also i'm in University now, when i get home i'll search around a bit
