    In Fred's latest commentary he advises getting to the Task Manager in Win7 (and Vista) with CTL-ALT-DEL, then clicking 'Task Manager"

    A faster, safer and more elegant way is to hit CTL-SHIFT-ESC. Takes you right there.


    Several years back, one used to be able to communicate directly with Fred, but his email address is nowhere to be found now. Alas...

    Try downloading Sysinternals Process Explorer (Google it and download from Microsofts site; it's free). It is a much more informative!

    They also have a bunch of other useful free utilities, my other favourite is Autoruns (a MSconfig on steroids)

    Right clicking on the taskbar; it's the 3rd line up.
    Sysinternal's Process Explorer is what taskmanager should be.

    That's what I use because it works in remote desktop as well.
