    Angry Windows XP Taskmanager

    Task Manager, Alt-Ctrl-Del, Regedit, have all disappeared from my XP system. I assume it is because of one of those automatic overnight updates that installed itself on my system around three in the morning. They were working fine one night and the next morning I couldn’t get either of these programs to work. I extracted the exe file for Task Manager from its .cab file, and expanded it in its root location. I tried to execute the exe file but the system just ignores it. Running regedit from the “Run” dialog gets a quick glimpse of a dos window and an even quicker disappearance of the same. Alt-Ctrl-Del does nothing at all. When I first encountered this phenomena I backed up all my important data, inserted my XP CD, which my system informed me could not be used because my current system made it obsolete (or words to tat effect.)<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>


    Anyone know how to fix this without erasing my hard drives and starting over?

    Without access to the registry, I don't know.
