Windows 7: Task Manager: Applications list disappears

Task Manager: Applications list disappears

This is an Acer Aspire R3610 running W7 HP 64

When I open Task Manager, the applications running appear as normal for a few seconds, then disappear, leaving the applications tab blank. Other tabs show up as normal. I have been running the system for several months and it always worked fine before. Now this problem has started and I'm not aware of changing anything.

Any suggestions, please?

Small Foot print mode?

You are not describing the Small Footprint mode, but give it a try and see what happens.

If that does not work, a system restore from before the problem may work.

Many thanks for that.

For the record, the problem was exactly the same in small footprint mode. The system restore seems to have fixed it. Very odd problem though.

Thanks again.
