The task manager is stuck with update speed paused and it won't let me change the update speed.

Try a "Refresh now" and then see if it will change.

Try this. Close Taskmanager. Go to: C:\Windows\System32\dllcache and find taskmgr.exe. Give it a double click. This is a reserve copy of the file. Does this one function properly? (Please be careful in there. This is an important system folder.)

There is no taskmgr.exe in C:\Windows\System32\dllcache. The closest thing to it in there is something called taskman and it doesn't do anything when I double-click it.

Look for it in C:\Windows\System32.

Time for "scannow." This procedure allows Windows to check itself for missing files. Good info here:

Stand by with your original Windows CD, in your case I'm sure it will be called for.
This will restore/replace any missing files that Windows needs.

That's great! :-) You may also like free Process Explorer from Sysinternals. It's what Taskmanager wants to be when it grows up. http://www.microsoft...ssExplorer.mspx (Download link at bottom of page.)
