Probably the work of some spyware/trojan. The fix is given below ,just change some settings in the registry. BTW, after enabling taskbar ,check for the usual stuff[adware/spyware/virii/trojans]

Open Registry Editor (Regedit.exe) and navigate to:
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\System]
In the right-pane, double-click DisableTaskMgr and set it's data to 0

That program is defenitely a virus.

Don't recommend a virus to people, this forum is for helping with problems, not giving problems.

The utility is from the renowned website and please test it and do not make any ir-relevant assumptions.
