When I press Ctrl - Alt - Del and am trying to access the Task Manager, all I get is the window that displays what is running.........nothing else.

Probably something stupid I am not doing but I haven't a clue as to how to correct it.

If the full Task Manager is showing, click on the next tab PROCESSES.

Sorry, didnt read your post properly. Double click on the outside edge of the task manager anywhere.

I'm having a similar problem. All of a sudden when I hit cont alt del I get nothing, no window of any kind. If I right click on the bottom task bar and then click on task manager I get nothing.... no window, no error message. What do I do in that case?

Hi mamawolf.

If you are comfortable checking in the registry, look HERE.

If you do not want to go there, it is possible you may be infected. Follow the advice HERE.

Let us know how you go.

Good luck.

Hmm...
I think the Task Manager is disabled more or less if it can't open
There is one cause that if you're the only one using the computer..
And that is a virus that has disabled it

There is a tool to enable the task manager again
see this link to the topic: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/84668/cant-open-regedit-task-manager-been-disabled/
Or i think there is an alternative for the Task Manager (Not Quite Sure)

I tried all these without any luck. Followed one of these links, then read more questions and answers and did more things and one of them finally worked.
