I killed some tasks on my laptop because my fan was to loud and everything is working, except some parts. I am not anymore administrator of my PC, so I cannot install nothing. My TaskManager doesn't work, error is "The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it". When I try to run something from start->run, for example to run some services, regedit, gpedit.msc (that are some advice from other topics similar to this one) it doesn't work. For every task I got the same message:

"The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it"

I cannot use system restore, because I got the same error. (I found some option for use system restore - with ctrl+alt+del, and restart+shit down, but it is without point to the time where this happen).

    What does “killed some tasks” mean? – Appleoddity May 20 '19 at 17:29
  • When TaskManager worked I selected in it and clicked End Process. – iviviviviv May 20 '19 at 17:36
  • If that is all you did then a restart will fix the problem. So killing some tasks did not cause this problem. – Appleoddity May 20 '19 at 18:20
  • Restart did not solve my problem. Maybe I also stopped some services. When I want to get in services, from start->services, I got same error – iviviviviv May 20 '19 at 18:31

I really don't think you can cause this problem by just killing some tasks by using task manager.

I think task manager disabled from registry somehow.

To enable it you can try :

1. Click on Start button.

2. Type regedit in Start menu search.

3. Select registry editor in search.

4. in the Registry Editor browse for the following keys. 

5. Look for a DWORD value "DisableTaskMgr" in right-side pane. If you find it, delete it.

6. Now check if the Task Manager will be enabled.
