Regedit and Task Mgr Fix for Windows XP

  1. Thanks to migetno1 on moving the task manager file and renaming it, I was able to locate the problem many of us have with regedit and taskmgr disappearing. Migetno1 said to locate the taskmgr file in sys32, move it and rename it. Open it and find processes that don't look right. Well, I located two that cause this problem. End processes for PCHButton.exe and MSNGuyen.exe. You will then find regedit and taskmgr stay open. However, they will start again when you reboot so just search your hard drive for the files PCHButton.exe and MSNGuyen.exe, delete them all and it will fix the problem.
