Missing Task Manager

  ZootHornRollo 12:55 13 Feb 2004

Pressing Ctrl / Alt / Delete on my XP machine used to bring up the task manager but since I reloaded Xp it only adds the square green box icon in the tray at bottom right corner. Clicking on the icon (double / left or right) does nothing. Any suggestions?

Scan for corrupt files, Start, Run, sfc /scannow (note the space).

Tried this but got nowhere - the process kept asking for my XP Home edition disk but the disk provided by Evesham doesn't appear to be what it wants

When it asks for the disk, is there a browse option to point to your C drive?

Have you tried right clicking on any blank space on the lower toolbar ?

tried the right click but that just brings up the icon and no task manager

try start/run type "taskmgr" click ok

or right click the start button/explore and navigate to c:\windows\system32 and look for "taskmgr.exe" here.is it listed and does it run when clicked?

so are you still missing the right click taskbar link?

still cannot find any info on this or how to restore apart from sfc but if it helps.right click the exe and select "send to desktop/create shortcut" in the meantime.

the sfc problem is a pain.dont know why this happens.
