Possibly the admin has disabled task manager for you. Are you the admin or owner of the computer?

Did you just start having this problem if not when did it start?
Also Did you just install Windows XP(SP2)?

If you are not connected with network ( Windows Domain ) .try this to re-enabled task manager.

Code:
Start -> Run -> gpedit.msc
User Configuration -> Administrative Templates ->
System -> Logon/Logoff -> Disable Task Manager


Double-click it and select the disable option button.

NOTE: If you are connected to the network then please logoff first and logon again using local computer name as the domain name and re-run the steps above.



Please let me know if this was helped.

Code:
Hive: HKEY_CURRENT_USER
Key: Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
Name: DisableTaskMgr
Type: REG_DWORD
Value: 1=Enablethis key, that is DISABLE TaskManager
Value: 0=Disablethis key, that is Don't Disable, Enable TaskManager

As part of the enhanced management available in Windows 2000 and Windows XP, rather than risking a registry change, as an administrator you can enable or disable Windows 2000 Pro or Windows XP Pro's TaskManager using Group Policy Editor. This can be applied to the local policy. Note: if you are trying to override your organizations group policy, you can't. As soon as you re-authenticate to the domain, the domain or OU Group Policy will rewrite the registry setting. But if the TaskManager was accidently disabled or you need to control this item for a set of standalone boxes this is for you:

    * Click Start
    * Click Run
    * Enter gpedit.msc in the Open box and click OK
    * In the Group Policy settings window
          o Select User Configuration
          o Select Administrative Templates
          o Select System
          o Select Ctrl+Alt+Delete options
          o Select Remove Task Manager
          o Double-click the Remove Task Manager option

And as I mentioned above, since the policy is Remove Task Manager, by disabling the policy, you are enabling the Task Manager.

Symptom

When you try to open Task Manager, the following error may occur:

Task Manager has been disabled by your administrator
Resolution

This error is caused if the DisableTaskMgr restriction is enabled. To enable Task Manager, try one of these methods:
IMPORTANT: If this restriction was enabled in your system without you doing anything or without your knowledge, then it's highly likely that a Virus has blocked the usage of Task Manager in your system by enabling the DisableTaskMgr policy via the registry. I strongly suggest that you perform a thorough checkup of your system immediately. Steps listed in the Resolution section of this article helps you unblock the Task Manager, but that does not remove the Virus (if any) from your system.
Method 1

Click Start, Run and type this command exactly as given below: (better - Copy and paste)

Code:
REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f


Method 2

Download and run this REG fix and double-click it.
