Read this http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ToolsQuit.htm and run one of the free
scans no personal preference for me.
Remove any viruses or trojans. Update your current antivirus software.
Do you run any anti-spy or anti-adware? If so update them and run the scans
as well.

Is there any error message? Or does it just close? If there is a message about it being disabled by the Administrator, see www.dougknox.com, Win XP Utilities, Enable/Disable Task Manager. Run this utility from the affected user's desktop. If its the latter, then you have some type of malware or virus. In the same section of my web site, see Create Emergency Copies of Critical XP System Utilities.
