Windows 7: Windows Task Manager Mess Up

Windows Task Manager Mess Up

Hi,

Earlier a browser window wouldn't close. I brought up Windows task manager to get rid of it. I clicked one too many times and now my Window's task manager is messed up. There are no tabs anymore. There is no x to get out of it. I can't figure out how to get this to look the way it used to. Should I try a system restore?

I attached a print screen of what it looks like.

Thanks
