Getting the 'Taskbar has been disabled by Administrator' error?

I was getting this one too. It was due to a virus blocking my access to the task bar. I didn't disable it myself and I am the administrator of my own computer (obvious).

So I found this site that has a neat fix for it. First you have to make a clean sweep of any viruses using a good anti-virus software. Then you have to run the following command in the run function. The one in the start bar menu.

Mind you, I'm using Windows Xp Service Pack 2. Haven't tested it on any other system.

So the command is simple,

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f

All you have to do is copy paste that code and run it in the run menu. That fixed it for me.

For further help, visit this page, where I got my help from, http://windowsxp.mvps.org/Taskmanager_error.htm
