  • not able to open task manager

    Hi all,

    I am not able to open task manager on one of the production servers in my company. It is windows server 2003 enterprise edition with sp2. I googled it up and searched the petri forum but no luck. Any suggestions on what I can try here?

    This is the error message I get when I try running taskmgr.exe from c:\windows\system32. Snap shot attached

    Thank you in advance

      Check your browser -- works fine here

      "C:\WIndows\System32\taskmgr.exe The specified path does not exist. Check the path then try again."

      Explorer window shows file exists.


      @OP -- can you copy the file from a good server?

        Typical - it works fine, now.

          If Ossian's suggestion doesn't work, try running SFC /SCANNOW from the Console.

              If you do not find "C:\WIndows\System32\taskmgr.exe" then insert window CD, copy and past at specified place and then register it in system32 folder task manager will be open
