Hi everyone, thanks for the help in advance :tazz:

I really don't know how to explain it clearly but, i'm going to give it a try, hope someone manages to understand what i mean...

I only realised today, that when i open TaskManager (by the way there's no problem getting it started, i.e. via Ctrl+Alt+Delete and Taskbar etc), only the first tab appears, i.e. only the tab that shows the current 'tasks' that are running is displayed. But other than that, there's absolutely nothing else, no frame for that window, no way to exit it other than clicking 'Alt+F4' after that. All other tabs, like the processes, mem usage etc are all gone and i don't know why

I don't know if this is caused by any malware, adware or virus etc etc or it's simply some setting i've mistakenly changed, but does someone know how to fix it?

thank you so much

G'Day Keith,

This tidbit should help you with your aforementioned problem:

"This problem is easy to fix, the Task Manager is running in "tiny footprint mode". To correct this, simply double-click on the border around the window and it will return to its normal state. To place task manager back in "tiny footprint mode" again, double click again on the border around the window."

Good luck!

Cheers,

Ashley.
