Starting Task Manager
It should be noted that there are various options for starting the task manager:
- Alt + Ctrl + Delete. This method is the most universal and the easiest. Having healed these keys, you must select "Start Task Manager" from the list.
- Task bar. If you picked up the virus and the first method did not open the task manager, right-click on the taskbar and select "Start Task Manager" in the window that opens.
- Taskmgr. To start the dispatcher, you can use the taskmgr command. To do this, go to the "Start" menu and select "All Programs" -> "Standard" -> "Run". In the opened menu it is necessary to register taskmgr and the menu of the manager of tasks will open. In addition, you can go to C: Windows System32, select the taskmgr.exe file there and activate it by double-clicking it. If you create a shortcut for this application on the desktop, you can use it at any time.
- Ctrl + Shift + Esc. If you want to invoke the task manager in windows 7, you can use the keyboard shortcut Ctrl + Shift + Esc, which immediately opens the dispatcher panel.
If you are unable to execute the proposed commands, you need to check if you have administrator rights on this personal computer.
In the event that a large number of applications and programs are open on the computer, the task manager may open after a while, so it is necessary to wait a little.
