Task manager will not show. I am trying to help a Friend who has been negligent about his security. I have managed to clear a lot of rubbish, but a lot of stuff remains. It doesn't help when the Task Manager isn't working properly. Any help much appreciated.

What about going directly to the program and double clicking it?

It is located either under:

C:\WINNT\System32\Taskmgr.exe

or

C:\WINDOWS\System32\Taskmgr.exe

Would something malicious cause this to happen?

Could be. Try Kellys Korner for taskmanager tips - there's a whole boatload there. Just scroll down this page until you reach the Task Manager headings: http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_t.htm

My favorite resources for Windows troubleshooting - all run by Microsoft MVP's.

Also, googling for MVP's will lead you to a lot more valuable sites from these folks!
