So for the past couple of weeks, task manager has been acting stubborn. When I do Ctrl+Alt+Del or right click the start bar and hit Task Manager, it shows up in the notification area, but doesn't come up and won't close out. I'm running Windows Vista, 32-bit.

I probably should add that it only occurs on occasion. Some days it works fine, but on other days it does not.

Hello, try doing a system restore to a date before this started.

Click Start.
in the start seach box type taskmgr.exe
When then pane pops up double click taskmgr.exe



If no joy you need to run SFC

Please run SFC (System File Checker)
Please run System File Checker sfc /scannow... For more information on this tool see How To Use Sfc.exe To Repair System Files

NOTE for Vista/WIN 7 users..The command needs to be run from an Elevated Command Prompt.Click Start, type cmd into the Start/Search box,
right-click cmd.exe in the list above and select 'Run as Administrator'


You will need your operating system CD handy.

Open Windows Task Manager....by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+ESC

Then click File.. then New Task(Run)

In the box that opens type sfc /scannow ......There is a space between c and /

Click OK
Let it run and insert the CD when asked.
