Sorry, I dont know why this happened, but a way to get out of it without restarting is:

under processes, find taskmgr.exe and click end proccess.

the menu bar and tabs may not be visible if Task Manager is running in the "Tiny Footprint mode". If you double-click the empty space in the border around the tabs, Task Manager switches to this mode. To switch Task Manager to its typical display mode, double-click the top border of the window.
