How to enable task manager?

Question

On occasion my screen will freeze and I have to use ctrl/alt/delete to end the task. But lately when I do so I get an error saying: Task manager is disabled by administrator. Well I am the administrator and I have no idea how or when I disabled it. I have searched for a way to enable it but have had no luck. I also have tried system restore but no mater what dates I choose it fails. Any thoughts or ideas would be helpful.

Thx, John
