I cannot get into my task manager. Only this screen shows and there are no tabs to click on. They only way I can exit is by the icon in the task bar.

I run Windows xp SP2.

What is wrong and how do i fix?

Ah yes, the ol' disabled-task-manager-by -hiding-the-tabs-by-way-of-double-clicking-on-the-border trick :thumbsup: . I double-clicked and it came back instantly.

Man oh man I could have literally saved hours and hours of searching and getting mad :flowers: :trumpet: by coming here first. You people's are genius' !!!

Now can you help me with feeling kind of stupid for something so simple.
