    Issue caused by Virus

    Greetings,

    I recently had a rather nasty virus on my laptop. I am running 2000 sp4. When I pres cntrl/alt/delete, I get the proper screen, but the selection for task manager is greyed out.

    How do I get this button active again? I am set as the Admin.


    Thanks,
    Brad

    Run gpedit.msc and see if Task Manager has been disabled under User Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | Logon/Logoff. Also, have you checked to make sure taskmgr.exe still exists in C:winntsystem32?

    Joe,
    I did the first of the 2 and toggled the item in the configuration.

    Now works,
