Task Manager not working correctly

By jwagner45 ·
When I hit ctrl-alt-del to bring up task manager the task manager window pops up very briefly(about a second or 2) and goes away. Anyone have an idea what is causing this?

Task Manager is a big memory eater, you may need to check how much free memory you have before using the Task Manager. If may not be enough to launch it.

You can try closing any application not in use (specially those on the tray); if after you close them/it you are able to launch the task manager it could be a confirmation of a lack of memory problem. If you thing you have a lot of memory, let's say 512 or more, then consider checking viruses, spywares or memory leaking applications.

I hope it helps.
