To enable the task manager run gpedit.msc, under User Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/Ctrl+Alt+Del Options/Remove Task Manager, select Not Configured.

If you did not disable it then typically it was done by a virus so run AVG and malwarebytes.

I think it is due to virus , If you are not able to login then download this kaspersky rescue disk from other pc and scan your PC with it. Burn this iso image to disc and then boot from dvd rom/cd rom.

You're on the right track, but need to change the hidden attributes on your infected drive.

Take a look here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic405109.html and bear in mind that these types of infection ( fake antivirus) are legion and very variable, you MAY need to come back here again !
