For some reason I cannot now see the Image Name of any process running in Task Manager (everything was fine yesterday). When I click on 'View' and then 'Select Columns' the 'Image Name' box is checked, but dimmed and I have no idea how this happened or how to fix it. I'm worried that there is some virus or malware app that doesn't want me to see it's image name. I downloaded Process Explorer and can't see anything out of the ordinary, but I'm a little paranoid as somehow my credit card number was recently compromised. Anyone have any ideas? Thanks.

Well...the easiest way to access anyone's credit card number...is to find a receipt or bill which has been discarded/misplaced, etc.

I would not see that alone as any indication of system compromise, either mine or any of the many vendors who might have a digital record of such.

Give this a shot, Task Manager reset settings from Ramesh's site. Scroll down to XP's tips and fixes. This is a .reg file. Save it to your desktop and select merge from the drop down menu. Click yes to merge the file into the registry. Reboot the computer for the fix to take effect.
