Disable Task Manager

3 Likes Comment

Pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC or pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and then selecting Task Manager will load the Task Manager.
Access to the task manager allows a user to do many things including making the system unstable or accessing other controls you may not want them to have. If you do not want others to have access to the task manager, you’ll need to disable it with either the Group Policy Management Console or the Windows Registry
Disable the Task Manager using Group Policy Editor
1. Start Group Policy Editor (Start > Run > ―gpedit.msc‖)
2. In the left panel, go to User Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Ctrl+Alt+Del Options
3. In the right panel, enable Remove Task Manager
Disable the Task Manager using the Windows Registry Editor
1. Start Registry Editor (Start > Run > “regedit”)
2. Disable Current User: In the left panel, navigate to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system
3. Disable All Users: In the left panel, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\system
4. Create a new DWORD value named DisableTaskMgr
5. Set the value to 1 to disable Task Manager
6. Set the value to 0 to re-enable Task Manager
In order for this to take effect, you may need to restart your system.
