Taskmanager gone & things not working

Hey, so my computer has been acting up recently. Some programs (games mostly) won't open, and the weirdest of all.. my task manager is gone. When I press CTR+ALT+DEL it shows the usual lock, change password, etc. But where the Task manager USUALLY is it's not there.. And when I right click on the bar @ the bottom of the screen it's blacked out.

Like so:

"Task manager has been disabled by your administrator"

Try going to bottom of the screen, task bar. Right clicking. Does it come up then?
If not give this a try
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
If that does not work and you know when the problem started go back a few days before and try a system restore.
