A malware usually disable Task Manager so you can't see the process through it.
Install Malwarebytes and scan for malwares by running a full system scan.

Yep, it sounds like your system has gotten infected by some malware. I'd strongly recommend doing a full scan of your system with Malwarebytes free to help be safe.

You can use OPTION ONE in the tutorial below to enable regedit.

While scanning must be a priority, you can re-enable several items with Re-Enable from a fellow member at Raymond's Forum. Including task manager. It is safe, I have the portable on my system, although Malwarebytes does warn of a possible malicious item when I start it. A Guy

You need to talk to your system administrator?

Lol, good point. If you are not an admin, nothing will work
