Tools To Restore Task Manager, Regedit, CMD And Folder Options After Being Disabled By A Virus

The Windows Task Manager is one of the most useful tools to check for any unknown running process. You can either access it by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Esc, right click on the Task bar and select Start Task Manager, or type taskmgr in the run box or search programs and files bar. If the Task Manager is disabled, you will see an error popup that says “Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator”.
In the case of a disabled command prompt (cmd.exe), it will still run but will show a message “The command prompt has been disabled by your administrator. Press any key to continue” in the window.
For the Folder Options being disabled to prevent Windows from showing hidden files, the menu will be removed from the Tools menu bar, grayed out in the Organize menu and you won’t find the shortcut icon in Control Panel.
All these restrictions can be easily lifted by making some changes on the registry using the Registry Editor (regedit) but unfortunately it can also be disabled and you will see the error “Registry editing has been disabled by your administrator”.

Re-Enable 2

The Re-Enable tool came about after one of our forum members tangomouse helped another forum member with a problem, and decided to create a tool to make things easier in future. It’s now a popular tool on the internet and can re-enable a disabled Task Manager, Registry Editor, Command Prompt, Folder Options, even System Restore and a few other system functions that are sometimes disabled by virus infections.

By default, all options are enabled and you can simply press Re-Enable to reset everything, or click the button to Uncheck All and tick only what you want. The disable feature will be instantly enabled or if not, a reboot would do the trick. The Tools menu has some other very useful options like unhide hidden drives, repair Explorer.exe startup issues and reset file and folder attributes etc. If you have any bugs or suggestions, they can be left in the Re-enable forum thread. Tangosoft no longer supports a portable version, but it can still be downloaded from Softpedia. Requires .NET Framework 3.5 to run (portable includes the .NET files).
