Windows 7: windows 7 task manager is not running.

windows 7 ultimate x86
windows 7 task manager is not running.

I use windows 7 ultimate x86 edition.
I can not run task manager.Whenever i try to run shows taskmgr.exe is not a valid win32 application. I use kaspersky 2012 antivirus. It does not detect any virus that might cause the problem. I have tried to run task manager from command prompt or system32 directory as administrator, but it shows the same error.
How can i solve this?

did you disable yourself by any chance? how about follow these steps here Task Manager - Enable or Disable - Vista Forums

if that doesn't help. download Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download and do a complete scan to see if it finds anything.

Hello Fazz, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might also run a sfc /scannow command to see if it may be able to repair the taskmgr.exe system file.

Hope this helps,
