Default Task manager problems

I am having problems, when i press ctrl+alt+del to get task manager, it says
"task manager has been disabled by the admin"

The account i am using is an admin account however, and I have double checked this!

I recently had a virus which AVG sorted out, I dont have any more.

I am using Windows XP Pro.

Any ideas?

Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies \System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Value: 1=Enablethis key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disablethis key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

Since i dont have pro this is what i did to try and fix my problem and to my suprise the value was already 0, but my task mgr is still disabled.


Click Start
Click Run
Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
In the Group Policy settings window
Select User Configuration
Select Administrative Templates
Select System
Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
Select Remove Task Manager
Double-click the Remove Task Manager option

---when i do regedit - i get none of these options, or i just missing it some how.
