Thread: Windows XP Task Manager Not Working

  1. #1


    I have a Windows XP Pro machine that Task Manager will not run on.
    Tried running from task bar, CTRL+ALT+DEL menu, and even the TASKMAN.EXE file itself.

    Never works.
    I have reinstalled IE 6 SP1.
    I have run System File Checker
    I cleaned W32.Klez off of the system and reinstalled the antivirus software (McAfee's website said Klez can cause Task Manager not to work)

    Still not working.
    I have not installed XP SP1 yet since it is an older PC and not sure of the compatibility yet. Still verifying this.

    Any other suggestions?

    actually its taskmgr.exe in XP not taskman.exe thats win9x..

    if you did an upgrade fom win98 you may have to clear some stuff out of a taskmgr registry key. or if you can run task manger when logged in as another user fix the user profile..

    Yes, I figured that one out about 10 minutes ago, thank you for your answer.
    For some reason taskmgr.exe was removed from the system.
    I copied it back onto the system and it works now.
    Thanks again.
