System Tray/Task Manager Issues

  1. Two things happened simultaneously today right after I ran the Confiker Tool from MS.

    I lost control of task manager and I lost control of my system tray.

    Task Manager is working fine now thanks to a fix from a board. The message I was getting from CTL-ALT-DEL was "Task Manager has been disabled by the system administrator."

    The second problem (I have to think they are related) is that I lost control of my system tray. I have no icons in the system tray and no expand arrow. The clock is still there. When I go to Taskbar properties the Hide Inactive box has been "Grayed Out."

    Any ideas?
