         Enable or disable Windows Task Manager
         by pcterritory on 13/05/09 at 7:26 pm

         Task manager is a powerful Windows tool for managing system services, processes, monitoring system
         activity and starting or closing applications. It is basically extended version of run box and it comes very
         handy to operate within Windows system. That’s way many system administrators prefer to disable task
         manager on public computers to restrict access to major critical system resources which could lead to system
         compromise.Here we will show you how to modify registry to disable and re-enable Windows task
         manager.




         Goto start and click on run(Win+r) and type in regedit and find this input

                HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System.

         If you do not see “System” folder under Policies you can create it by right mouse click on Policies > Key >
         and name it System. Than point your mouse pointer to an empty area, right click it and choose create new
         DWORD (32 bit) value. Name it DisableTaskMgr and press enter. Than double click it and set Hexadecimal
         value to 1. Press enter and reboot computer. After than task manager will be disabled on your machine and
         inaccessible. If you later decide to enable task manager again, navigate once against to dword 32 value we
         just created and simply delete it or change value to 0. Navigate to

                  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

         If there’s no key called “System” right click Policies navigate to “New -> Key” in the right click menu and
         type “System” to create a new key.(skip this step if you have the key) To disable task manager right click the
         empty area in the right side pane and create a key with the following settings “New -> DWORD (32-bit)
         Value” and type “DisableTaskMgr” and press Enter.(without the quotes) Right click on “DisableTaskMgr”
         and click “Modify”, type 1 and press ok(see screen caps for more info) to enable task manager simply
         navigate to

                  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

         right click “DisableTaskMgr” click delete and click yes for confirmation.
