    On my computer I hit CTL-ALT-DELETE to get to the Task Manager.
    All I get is a CPU screen and no tabs to get to Processes or other tabs.
    I think I have a virus or malware.
    I have run Avast, SpyBot, and a Malware program and all show clean.
    However, I still only have a CPU and no tabs.
    If anybody can help please let me know how or where to go.

    Thanks,

    Lew

    Open taskmanager again and double click on the border area.

    That can happen by accident sometimes. Makes you wonder why MS has that setup the way they do.
