Windows Task Manager in XP Pro has dissapeared from my hard disk. Ctrl+Alt+Delete does not bring task manager up. Right clicking on the task bar brings up a dialog box with Task Manager in it but clicking on it has no effect. Searching for Task Manager has no result Installing Service Pack 2 had no effect. Task Manager is still missing. Any advice on how to reinstall Windown Task Manager would be much appreciated.
Thanks for replies to my query. typing 'taskmgr.exe' brings up the message 'Windows cannot find 'taskmgr.exe' .... Somehow Windows Task Manager has been wiped off my Windows XP Pro instilation. I don't know how as I used to have it and found it very useful. Any advice on how to reinstall it would be much appreciated.
Message via email... "Hi, Thanks for your advice. Everything went fine until I clicked on 'install', this took me to a dilogue box requesting the insertion of Windows Service Pack 2 CD. On inserting the CD and clicking on the appropriate drive all that appears is a list: DOTNETFX IMAGES SUPPORT VALUEADD Clicking OK brings up the message ' The file mstask.dll is not found. Clicking on any part of the list does not result in finding the missing 'mstask.dll' Sorry to keep asking, but is there anything else that I can do to restore the missing Task Manager? Many thanks for your interest"
Reading TweakXP.com it asks you to use mstask.inf not .dll. Have you done a search on your CD or on your system for mstask.inf?
