Task Manager Has Been Disabled, How to Fix It?

Many times when working   on a computer that has been infected with a
virus, trojan, or piece   of spyware I find myself with the Task Manager
being disabled. Malware   creators like to disable Task Manager so it makes
solving the problem and   removing the issue difficult.

If this happens you'll normally have to edit the Windows registry to fix
the problem. A restriction has been placed on the user to not allow them
to run Task Manager, this might be ok in an office environment where the
IT department wants to control things, but in a home office this can
cause major problems trying to fix a malware or virus issue.

Listed below you will find the many ways to reenable Task Manager along
with an automatic method that works wonders.

Description: Author: van Hauser / THC I.INTRODUCTION II.MENTAL III.BASICS IV.ADVANCED V.UNDER SUSPECT VI.CAUGHT VII.PROGRAMS VIII.LAST WORDS I. INTRODUCTION Please excuse my poor english - I'm german so it's not my mother language I'm writing in. Anyway if your english is far better than mine, then don't think this text hasn't got anything to offer you. In contrast. Ignore the spelling errors & syntax - the contents of this document is important ... NOTE : This text is splitted into TWO parts. The first one, this, teaches about the background and theory. The second just shows the basics by an easy step-by-step procedure what to type and what to avoid. If you are too lazy to read this whole stuff here (sucker!) then read that one. It's main targets are novice unix hackers. If you think, getting the newest exploits fast is the most important thing you must think about and keep your eyes on - you are wrong. How does the best exploit helps you once the police has seized your computer, all your accounts closed and everything monitored? Not to mention the warrants etc. No, the most important thing is not to get caught. It is the FIRST thing every hacker should learn, because on many occasions, especially if you make your first hacks at a site which is security conscious because of many break-ins, your first hack can be your last one (even if all that lays back a year ago "they" may come up with that!), or you are too lazy to change your habits later in your career. So read through these sections carefully! Even a very skilled hacker can learn a bit or byte here. So this is what you find here: Section I - you are reading me, the introduction Section II - the mental things and how to become paranoid 1. Motivation 2. Why you must become paranoid 3. How to become paranoid 4. Stay paranoid Section III - the basics you should know BEFORE begin hacking 1. Preface 2. Secure Yourself
