    task manager

    When I hit ctr+alt+del it has an alert window that says Task manager has been disabled by your administrator. The only account on this computer is an admin how do I change this setting?
    My computer is awesome.

    I believe you can edit the registry to fix this:

    Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
    Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies \System
    Name: DisableTaskMgr
    Type: REG_DWORD
    Set value equal to 0, to disable.

    Be sure to make a back up of the registry first!

    When I click Ctrl+Alt+Del in win xp,

    some computer show task manager, some computers show something including Lock Computer, Log Off, Shutdown, Task Manager, etc.. that I could choose, just like win2000.

    I don't want to see task manager all the time I press Ctrl+alt+del. Is there any way to change it?

    Well, to cerin, I believe you shouldn't be accessing the task manager if your admin has put a restriction on it. So yea, just don't ask.

    Afreedboy, do the two computers have the same OS? Or is one XP pro and one XP home?
