Good <time of day>, everyone!

Few days ago I stuck with the problem when tried to replace standard task managed with awesome utility Process Explorer. This problem concludes in unability to run it in usual way.
I tried the following:
  • Ctrl+Shift+ESC - does nothing
  • Ctrl+Alt+Del -> Launch task manager - does nothing
  • RMB on taskbar -> Run task manager - does show message (see below)
  • Run Taskmgr.exe from windows\System32 - does run Process Explorer Confused
Here is the text of the message:
Quote "Windows cannot find 'C:\Windows\system32\taskmgr.exe'. Make sure you typed the name correctly, and then try again."
Looking in C:\Windows\system32\ shows that there IS taskmgr.exe and I can do with it whatever I want.
I am running Windows 7 Ultimate x64 with Russian locale.
Here is small table with performed actions and appeared results depending on option "Replace Task Manager" in Process Explorer.
actions can be seen in the table (link is upper)

Checked with google for this problem, but nothing helped (registry manipulations, checking replacing option on and off, rebooting, etc).

What can honored community advise me to be able to run Process Explorer (or at least Task Manager) by usual way?

Thanks in advance for help.

Best regards,
Paul
