task manager randomly exiting

By greymethod ·
For some reason, whenever I press CTRL+ALT+Delete to bring up the task manager, it pops up and then goes away. It has been doing this even after 3 restarts, and I have no idea what to do.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You mean it runs in a minimized state? You can correct that by clicking Options and then unchecking "Hide when Minimized" and "Minimize On Use."

Or do you mean that it shuts off?

I would suspect if it is just shutting off, that you have a virus/trojan or malware issue.

This is what I though it was also, so I ran a scan using McAfee virusscan and it found two low level trojans. I deleted both the files, but the problem has still not gone away.

i notcied that when the task manager does pop up, it goes away as soon as the facts about "processes, CPU usage, commit charge" show at the bottom.
