Closed Windows 7 Task Manager not showing Apps running; no menu button to shu Tags: Configuration Windows 7 Apps Task Manager Last response: September 28, 2011 12:21 AM in Windows 7 Share logamuthu September 27, 2011 8:16:54 PM Windows 7 Premium 64 bit's Task Manager used to show a bar with Applications/Processes etc., with lists below making it possible to "end-now" some apps and stop some processes at least for a while to save on CPU/Memory usage. There was also provision by a menu bar at the top of Task Manager window to shut down pc etc., from within the task manager. Presently my Windows 7 Premium 64 bit's Task Manager shows only what looks like a list of processes (Not Applications) topped by a head-bar having Name/PID/Description/Status/Group and a selectable button at the bottom right for Services.(I could have uploaded a screen if this Ask Your Question Form had provided for attachments!). I suspect this change in Task Manager came after some new installs - Windows Updates etc., I want to get back my Task Manager with all provisions and flavours as before. Plsss... help!

Add a new user in control panel with admin rights, log off, log on to new account and test. If it works move all you need to and delete old account.

You'll get your headers and menu back.

That works as well, but the labor involved...

The original profile was not "corrupt." Score 0 logamuthu September 28, 2011 12:15:31 AM Best answer selected by logamuthu.
