    Can't open Task Manager as administrator

    So, whenever i try to open my task manager on my pc, it says "Task Manager was deactivated by your Administrator", even thought it is my PC and i am the admin. I never deactivated task manager, i don't know why would i ever do that, any suggestions so i can "activate" it ? (Screen shot)

    Can't tell from your specs, Home or Pro, don't think you have 223 GB of ram onboard. If Pro, I would look in gpedit.msc and run some scans for malware and virus and rootkit.
