    I have a problem that just started yesterday. I am running W2k Pro. When I hit Control-Alt-Delete and bring up the Task Manager Window, it only displays the Applications Status page & no longer has tabs or buttons to choose Processes or Performance. There is no colored title bar, nor the listing below (file options view window & help.) Also, and most importantly, the window no longer has the little buttons on the right edge of the title bar to allow me to minimize or exit out of Task Manager!

    How do I get it back to normal? Rebooting brings up the same thing. It's probably something simple, but I haven't been able to figure it out.

    Double-click on the border to restore the tabs.
