I recently got a Dell Pentium 3 laptop. At first the task manager was normal, but now it is just the list of processes with username, memory use, and cpu use, and the end process button at the bottom. There is no border, and there are no tabs at the top. It has a mouse cursor that activates by hovering without clicking. So sometimes things happen that I don't expect or intend, but I have no idea how the task manager changed.

Double-click the grey border above the word "Task" and it should return to normal.

EDIT: Beat me to it :P

The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
