Lost top of Task manager help please..thankyou

  bof:) 15:27 05 Feb 2007

Hi all, when I hold down Ctrl+Alt+Del buttons, I get Task Manager up without the top part with the X button to close down.

In the taskbar I have a blank square which if I right click on does nothing.

The only way I can close the Task manager down is to restart my laptop.

Also if I did ctrl+alt+del twice it used to shut laptop down now this does nothing.

The only program I've installed lately is AVG's antispyware 30 day free trial but I think I had the Task Manager problem before this.

Any ideas on how I can fix this?

Many thaanks,


PS using WinXP Home, SP2. IE7

Hi VoG™, I've clicked on everything I can find on the link you gave but I cannot find a Flash Movie of any kind. Any idea where they are?

Try click here instead

The movie in my first link should play automatically. If it doesn't then uninstall click here and re-install FlashPlayer click here (untick Yahoo toolbar if you don't want it).

Thankyou VoG™, top of Task manager re-appeared as soon as I double clicked where your link said to.

many thanks for your help again,

This same prob has been nagging me for months, I've run all kinds of checks, and never knew about the Tiny Footprint option.

Back to a full-scale Task Manager with your help, thanks!
