How do you try to access those?
Writing in the "run..." line?

I guesss you tried to open task manager to kill the cmd process so to open task manager, there are different ways. The 2 ones that generally works when the rest isn't are:
ctrl + shift + esc
ctrl + alt + del then click on task manager
If you don't have the task manager in the list in ctrl+ alt + del or it's greyed out then it's that you don't have the rights to get there or it has been disable in the registery.
In the last case, I don't remember the key but google can find it for you.

What happens if you click Start then run and type in taskmgr then click ok? What about in safe mode?
