    Hi, Somehow my task manager program got messed up last night and i cant seem to get it corrected. I have re-booted many times to no avail. I was in the task manager trying to close down a program, it was taking forever and somehow the task manager "shrunk" to only include the programs running log screen with the 3 buttons on the bottom (End Task, Switch To, the other one i cant remember right now i am at work.)

    Now every time i try to bring up the task manager, all i get is that little window with only the current programs running, there is no header up top, nor tabs to access the other options.

    If i shut down and reboot under my other account, i can access the task manager just fine, it is only on my main account that i am having this issue. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    I had this same problem, and when I found out what it was I felt like a BOOB!

    Just double click on the title bar[​IMG]

    Yup, did same thing here. It is a disfeature in XP. Double click the border (edge) and it will revert back :)
