    Somehow my task manager became disabled and I don't know how to enable it again. I right clicked on my task bar but cannot click on task manager as it is dormant and won't activate there. I went to "start" "run" and typed in "services.msc" but couldn't find anything that says "task manager"
    If anyone out there has an answer, could you inform me please. Thanks in advance.

    If that doesn't work then I can show you how to go into the registry and fix it. The first option is the easiest.

    I don't know what to say except thank you very much. I have been trying to find a solution by myself and only hit a brick wall. I like to try to figure things out but sometimes I have to give in and ask. Thanks again!

    Thanks Mac!
    Truly, I'm a Mac user myself but use Windows XP most of the day.

    Your little link helped quite a bit!
    Thanks for that.

    Hi mac27,

    Maybe you can help me?
    I have a xp pro sp2, barton 2500 amd, 1 gig ram, and a radeon graphic card 8500.
    My problem is the pc reboots for no apparent reason, this can happen several times a day or go for days without problems,it does a scan disk which takes ages but never finds anything. then it says my pc has started again after a major system breakdown.
    Now I have checked my cooling system and the tempertures are ok.

    is there a way from stopping the system from rebooting or doing a scandisk untill I want it too,?? I think this problem arised after DL sp2 but Iam not certain I have deinstalled sp2 and reinstalled with no effect.

    any advice would be helpfull thanks

    shelly

    What adware and spyware software do you run on your PC? What virus scan do you have? When did it start, after the first install of SP2?

    Do this. Right click on my computer choose properties, then click on the advanced tab, next click on settings under startup and recovery, next remove the check mark next to Automatically Restart. Next time it trys to reboot it will give you an error message instead of rebooting. Give the error message when it does.

    There are 3 main common causes of sudden computer reboots. A bad power supply, a faulty video card or driver, and a failing RAM chip are often the source of these boots out of the blue.

    Also you can view your event log. This is where all your error messages are stored.

    Control Panel>Administrative Tools>Event Viewer..........

    There are certain Viruses which will also cause your pc to continually reboot. Go to Windows update and manually check for new downloads, they have a couple of tools there which check for the worst worms. Let us know the results.
