    When you try to run Task Manager in Windows Vista or in XP,sometimes you receive an error message that says;

    Task Manager has been disabled by the Administrator.

    Click on Start, Run, and type regedit.exe and press Enter
    Navigate to the following branch

    In the right pane, find and delete the value named DisableTaskMgr
    Close the Windows registry editor
    Reboot you computer for the changes
    Method 3: Using the Command Prompt

    Click “Start > Run” and type following command exactly as given below and click OK.
