:confused: When i press, ctrl/alt/delete, i get the task manager box, but only part of it.

just a gray square box with the programs running in it... no minimize/max/close buttons, no menus, or tabs... nothing!

to close i have to right click in the tast icon tray and close.

do I have a virus that is causing this?

Please help

No, not at all. I asked exactly the same question not that long ago. :)

I have the same problem but double clicking does not bring it up. I get the gray box on the task bar and the cpu utilization icon in the systray but that is it. Can you help?

The Task Manager window is probably off-screen, either by moving it or due to a screen resolution change.

Right click the taskbar button, select move from the menu. Using the arrow pad on the keyboard, tap up and/or left until the window appears on the screen (anywhere you can grab it by the title bar with the mouse), hit enter. Use the mouse to place it as desired before closing or minimizing the window, it will appear in that position next time you open or restore it.
