Windows 7: Task Manager 'unusual window'

Task Manager 'unusual window'

I noticed that my Task Manager (Pressing Ctrl+alt+Del button) is different than the usual or normal window (see image).

What seems to be the problem? Why there's no text or menu that normally shows on TM?

Kindly help me to resolve this kind of 'unusual problem'.

Thanks and regards,

It works, has worked at least since Win2000. I'll bet my place in Heaven on that (not going there anyway, according to my mom )

No problem guys.

Each one of you can have a point rep if this works.

Will do it when I get back home but right now, I'm in the office at work.
