If files are indeed "infected" then they SHOULD be deleted by MBAM. If it is true file infecting virus that prepends, appends or cavity injects code into a legitimate file or if it is a trojan that "trojanizes" or "patches" a legitimate file by prepending, appending or cavity injection MBAM is unable to extract that malicious code segment and leave the legitimate file in it pre-infected pristine state. Thus MBAM moves the file into quarantine as stated above.

I think you are misinterpreting the occurrences. MBAM removing DeepFreeze (whatever that is) will not cause a problem with TaskManager. Malware will disable the use of TaskManager specifically as a task of "self preservation".
Please read; I'm infected - What do I do now? and follow its direction to see what else is on your PC that it may be infected with.
