Task manager has gone LOL
« on: November 07, 2008, 11:17:16 PM »

Can someone help me out here - my Task Manager has screwed up somehow.  I've lost the usual "window" pane to it, and consequently I no longer have the tabs that allow you to view information on Processes / CPU usage / pc users

This is quite out of the ordinary, I fear it may be a windows bug (argh)


This is a pain because Hammer isn't closing properly for me at the moment, which somehow locks up my PC's ability to run anything 3D.  So I need TaskManager to work properly so I can "EndTask" Hammer!

Thanks Random!  Problem solved.

I'm guessing that accidentally double clicking it at first caused the problem?  It's a pretty wierd function.  Well at least its gone.

Why did microsoft include this function  ???
to trick users into learning about a seemingly useless feature and leave their task managers crippled until they themselves learn what's going on, either through personal experimentation or through individual research, obviously.

Well, everyone learns by simply playing around with the program, right? :P
