I have an XP and I've been stuck with windows task manager for 3 days. It won't stop. What do I do? Please make it simple or explain it like you're talking to a 5 year old. I'm computer lacking. Thanks.

Are you saying that there is no X with which to shut task manager down?
I know very little about computers....... but I do still use XP and I know that if you double-click just inside the blue border at the left or right side of Task Manager, it gets rid of the X. You have to double click again on the greyish border to bring it back to normal.
It probably isn't what you wanted..... but I thought I would mention it just in case it helps. If not, I am sure somebody else will be able to help you out.

Hello again Pearlcatdesign,
Hopefully you have been able to fix your problem by now. If not, it occurred to me that - as you said you do not know much about computers - you might not know how to post the screenshots that the other two posters above requested...... so I thought I would poke my nose in again and tell you how to do it!. The instructions below were compiled by me, but were based on instructions which I got from this forum when I received a lot of help here a couple of years ago.
Bye for now,
TO CAPTURE A SCREENSHOT AND SAVE IT TO YOUR COMPUTER
Go to the screen you want to copy and click on the ‘PRINT SCREEN’ button on your keyboard (this is usually on the top row, near the end on the right). This will copy a picture of the screen onto your clipboard.
Go to ‘START’.... ‘ALL PROGRAMS’....’ACCESSORIES’.....’PAINT’.
Left -click anywhere within the white box.
Press the CTRL and V buttons simultaneously: this will post the screenshot into the white box.
Next, save the picture onto your computer by clicking ‘FILE’ and ‘SAVE AS’.
Choose where you want to save the file by selecting a location on the left of the ‘SAVE AS’ box.
Type in a name so you can easily identify the file in the future.
Open the drop-down menu under ‘SAVE AS TYPE’ and select ‘JPEG (*.JPG;*.JPEG;*.JPE;*.JFIF)’. (NOTE: This step is especially important if you are posting online to a forum etc., as other formats will make the file too large.)
Finally, click SAVE to save the file to your chosen location.
Go to the location of the file and click on it. It will open in whichever program you use for photos etc. You can follow your usual procedure to crop the picture and cut out any bits not needed.
TO POST A SCREENSHOT ON GTG
Click ‘MORE REPLY OPTIONS’ at the end of the post
On the new screen that comes up, type in anything you want to say. Then click ‘BROWSE’ at the bottom left of the screen and navigate to the location of the screenshot you want to post (and which was previously saved onto your computer).
Click ‘OPEN’ followed by ‘ATTACH THIS FILE’. You can then publish your post in the usual way by clicking ‘ADD REPLY’.

Ah SH*T! I'm sorry I never came back to this thread after starting it. I got side tracked. I have it fixed. Thank you so much to everyone. BTW. I didn't know how to post a picture so thanks for that info Chris. Pearl

I guessed you didn't know how to post a screenshot! It is a useful thing to know how to do - and not only for this forum. Some of the helpers here automatically include instructions on how to do it anyway.... but others just assume that you already know.
One thing I have learned from the help I have received here myself is to never be afraid to ask if you don't know something, however silly you might feel. Most of the people here are pretty patient and only too happy to help.
Have a great weekend,

Not sure what the issue was or how it was resolved but would like to thank other members for offering their help
Glad you got it sorted and thanks for letting us know that all is now well with your computer Pearlcatdesign

Sorry, have been ill all week.....
No need for you to thank us, Phill. Speaking for myself, it makes a nice change for me to actually be able to help - albeit in such a miniscule way - as often I do not fully understand the questions on here, let alone the answers!
With regard to the screenshot issue, I had a strong feeling that Pearl did not know how to do it and when she didn't come back and say so, I just had to poke my nose in! I myself have had such an incredible amount of help from this forum (from you and from others) and it troubled me that she might be reluctant to seek help here in the future because of not understanding what was required of her here.
Have a great weekend.

No problem Chris, hope you are now fully recovered and likewise have a good weekend
