Windows 7: Task Manager, mstask.inf missing

Task Manager, mstask.inf missing

Hi

I have a problem with my task manager as it will not load the running applications windows properly. I searched for a way to re-install only to find that it looks like my mstask.inf file (needed to re-install) is missing!

Does anyone know the best way to re-install task manager and to re-instate mstask.inf?
Thanks

Hello quietman,

You might see if running a sfc /scannow command may help since it will scan and attempt to repair/replace any missing or corrupted system files.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hi Shawn

Thanks for this it was worth a go...

Well, there is not a mstask.inf file by default in Windows 7, so that is not an option.

Could you post a screenshot of what you mean by the Task Manager will not load the running applications windows properly to see if we might spot what the issue may be?

'Shut Down' Missing in Task Manager?
Hopefully a simple (not dumb) question: Where, exactly, is the 'Shut Down' button/option in Task Manager? Any logic in removing the option for every Windows user's most frequently used 'Task'? And, yes I know there's still Ctl+Alt+Delete. This became a non-trivial issue when opening Media...
