If I disable the task manager via the registry or gpedit.msc it seems to block access by the admin account to.

Any help would be very much appreciated!
Hello Bladeforce,

This will help show you how to disable Task Manager for all users on the computer. It's the same as in Vista.

Hi Shawn,

This method also disables it for his own admin account.

He wants to disable it for restricted users only.
