    Unable to terminate a running process using Task Managerdue to “Access Denied” error

    I have installed windows 8 Release Preview on my computer. Task Manager is always a big boost for windows users as it provides you the facility to terminate any running process but the same task manager is not working in windows 8. It flashes an "Access denied" error, when I am trying to terminate any running process. Is there any way to fix this issue?

    ------->Hey the problem is due to virus get effected to your system

    ------->some viruses disables the Task Manager and makes it to work inappropriate

    ------->Do check Antivirus software is Up to date or else use a good anti virus software

    OR
    ------->Task manger is capable of stopping any process so as a normal user you can't stop all the processes

    ------->Try to take the administrative privileges for task manager and proceed your work
