ramsey76 , it may be a good idea to check your PC for infection as there are a few nasties around that can prevent the task manager from running.

In the meantime you could give this a try and see if it helps.

That program worked.

My AV and spyware runs were clean.

Major thanks

Did you turn off aps or processes with the task manager or msconfig or reconfigure any services before your task manager stopped opening?

Unless you know exactly what you are doing you can cause irreparable harm to your op system by doing the above.
