Click Start>Run and type in "regedit.exe" then hit enter (or click ok). Navigate to, HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\C urrentVersion\\Policies\\System <br />
If you don't have the System key there, then just right-click Policies and select New>Key. Then name the key "System". Once in the System Key, right-click and create new DWORD value. Name it "Disabletaskmgr" and then right-click it>Modify and set value data to 1. <br />
<br />
I was gonna put this in the faqs but I'm too lazy to find out how...or maybe too dumb. Anyway, I know it's something small and it probably won't benefit most of you...but if you ever had someone using your computer that you didn't want to close, or run, certain apps and programs...then it's a nifty little tool. Or maybe you don't want anyone messing with CPU priority and Affinity.

Two questions from a horrible noob:<br />
<br />
What would turning off my task manager accomplish? <br />
<br />
and I aked this in another thread a few days ago, and haven't gotten response:<br />
<br />
Why can't I access regedit? <br />
Stupid windows says the admin has disabled this. I am admin. How did I do that and how do I undo? I've run spyware and virus checks (with 2 prog's) and still no love.<br />
<br />
Thanks.

Well, for most of us disabling the task manager is pretty useless. I just posted it...just becase, you never know. As for you not being able to regedit...go to your user accounts and make sure that your profile is set to administrative rights.

LOL, he'll have to have administrative rights to change his account to check to see if he has administrative rights.... So, you may have to figure out which account <i>does</i> have administrative rights.

Okay, I'm not that much of a noobie. (9_9)<br />
<br />
When I said that I was admin, I meant it. I've triple-checked and I am logged into this computer with the only account that has admin rights. Yes I have admin rights. <(><)><br />
<br />
Thanks for at least trying to help, though. m(_ _)m<br />
<br />
The problem is that I don't know how to block access to regedit, or how to unblock it. (-_-#)<br />
<br />
Any other suggestions? (-_-?)
