  1. i used to have some tabs above this window for applications, performance and something else but now there is nothng. it also used to have the X in the corner where you could close the Ctrl-Alt-Del window but now it isnt there either. when i press Ctrl-Atl-Del now i can disable the application that i want to but cant close the Ctrl-Alt-Del window.

    does anyone know what this problem could be? i have been having a lot of trouble running games and programs that require a lot of RAM now too.

    this is exactly the kind of window i used to get but now i dont get those (Applications, Processes, Performance, Networking) features. of this picture, i get from where it says
    "Image Name User Name CPU Mem Usage" down. nothing above it.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Eleventeen is correct. Double clicking on the border of task amanger will restore the tabs.

    Raider,

    rather than pressing ctrl+alt+del just right click on the task bar and choose task manager..lot less hassle
