Can you open Task Manager by going to Start, Run and entering TASKMGR.EXE
?? If not, then you probably have a virus that your AV software is not
picking up.

Reboot your computer in Safe Mode and run your antivirus software again. If
that fails to turn up anything, See www.dougknox.com, Win XP Utilities,
Create Emergency Copies of Critical XP System Utilities. This small VB
Program will create backup, usable copies of Task Manger, Regedit and
MSConfig (named Taskmgr1.exe, Regedit.com and MSConfig1.exe) in a new folder
C:\EmergencyUtil. Many virus programs will intercept these programs, based
on their original file name. The modified file names, allow them to be run.
Open Windows Explorer to C:\EmergencyUtil and double click the application
you need. The next revision will allow you to browse for the folder you
want to place the backups in.

Additionally, see the Win XP Utilities section for Startup Programs Tracker.
This small utility scans your system for startup programs and running
processes. It also allows you to create a log file that can be copied and
pasted into a newsgroup post. The contents of the program window are also
copied to the Windows Clipboard, automatically. For replies to newsgroup
posts, do NOT include the Running Services, unless its absolutely necessary.

I can run Task Manager by going to Start, Run and entering
either c:\taskmgr.exe or c:\I386\taskmgr.exe but not if I
enter taskmgr.exe.

So Task Manager is still on the computer, but does not
start up when I press CTRL+ALT+DEL.

Please help!

Thanks

Either your PATH statement is incorrect, so that XP can't find Taskmgr.exe,
or its missing from where its supposed to be in Windows\System32
