When I hit Ctrl Alt Del to get windows task manager up, all i get is a
small window showing Local area Connection and Tiscali Broadband usage
on a flowing bar graph. I don't get the usual window with options to
check or close running programs.
I am running Windows XP home edition (service pack 2)

Have i got a virus cos my other machine opens up the full task manager
without any problems

Hi

Try double clicking the edge of the Task Manager.

Such a simple answer! Ideal for a simple bloke like me :)

Did the trick, thanks.
