Thank you for this forum!

When I perform the "control-alt-delete" function on my laptop, the only option that comes up is the CPU Usage/CPU History table. This is a new problem - the laptop is about 3 years old. I did not install new software. I have the Norton security & SPAM suite. The only way to get rid of this screen is to repeat the control-alt-delete function until there's a group of them and then close the group.

Thoughts?

Thank you again.

Hi 5889johnbs...

By your description, it sounds like the Task Manager is opening in the small footprint mode. Try double clicking in the bottom border area and see if it returns to normal.

Thank you for your reply - no joy. It is the standard size screen, it's just that this is the only one of the 4 menus displayed.

Use this link to kelly's korner. Go to number 113 and try the repair task manager option.
