    for some reason my windows taskmanagers appearance has changed

    it no longer has the menu's at the top or the window surrounding it its just a gray box

    i cant swap between Processes/Programs/ Ect.

    heres an image of what it looks like

    im using the AlienWare XenoMorph theme which is free to download at the alienware website
    this skin has not caused problems until now

    i did however remove my Malfunctioning CD/DVD drive and put a new one in but the computer was off during that time and i didn't unplug anything unnecessary

    this problem occurred after i turned my computer on with the new cd drive in it

    (cd drive and everything else in my computer works perfectly fine its just the taskmanager that has changed)

    Restarting my computer doesn't change this problem

    im running Windows XP Home Service Pack 2

    Just double click on the top part and the menu will come back.
