I'd like to point out that in Home versions of Vista and Windows 7, gpedit.msc does not exist, since they have no policies. (Policies are typically a domain function only.)

If task manager somehow got disabled on your system, you should be able to use regedit, and go to :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System

There should be a REG_DWORD called DisableTaskMgr. If it has a value of 1, it's disabled. Switch the value to zero.

(Note, if you're checking this on Home versions, the Registry key likely doesn't go farther than Policies. That's because there are no policies installed. But if Task manager ever gets disabled, it'll likely be there at that point.)

Good catch bro, I totally forgot about that.
