Lost tabs on task manager

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

Task Manager comes up with applications showing but no tabs, no menus, no
system stuff. Just the list of running applications with a border around
it. Only way out is escape key. Rebooting does not repair.

Any suggestions?

TIA, Mike

    Task Manager comes up with applications showing but no tabs, no menus, no

    it. Only way out is escape key. Rebooting does not repair.

    Any suggestions?
