Removing the "Task Manager disabled" problem in Windows

First of all for all those who dont know what task manager is, it is opened by pressing ctrl+alt+del keys.
Task manager lists all the processes that are running on your windows. You can switch, terminate the programs and processes. also some other reports can be seen there.

Now, lets get to the point. The malware disables the task manager saying

"Task manager has been disabled by admin".

To get rid of this malware, do the following steps:

1. Open Notepad in Windows.
2. Paste the following code in a new file, and name the file TaskManager.reg

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Image File Execution Options\taskmgr.exe]

3. Remember, save the file as TaskManager.exe, and place it anywhere like desktop and close notepad.
4. Open the TaskManager.exe file and click Yes when Windows asks you "Add Information to Registry?"
5. Enjoy the power of Task Manager!
