    Blue Task Manager


    Thanks Sammy but the problem is there is not taskmgr.exe in my system32 folder only in my syswow64 folder. When I try to paste a taskmgr.exe into the sytem32 folder it tells me it already has one there but it is referring to the one in the syswow64 folder as though it is treating them as one in the same. So Now I have now task manager when I hit ctrl/alt/del .. and click on task manager nothing happens. When i tried to go back to a restore point it always comes back with system restore failed.. I have tried 3 different restore points. This is driving me insane and I really did not want to re-install.

    I'm sorry that you are having such a hard time with this.

    You can try this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker and if that doesn't you can try a repair install instead of doing a full reinstall. Repair Install

    I found this Windows 7 Blue Task Manager by ~xandir112 on deviantART if you like blue like I do you will like this & I'm just passing this along. Make a restore point first to be safe and follow the directions in the winrar file.

    This will work on the 7600 build

    have some more +rep last time i found a blue taskmanager (probably by same guy) it didn't work, but this one did!! for the benefit of 7600 users the taskmgr.exe from the 7068 folder is the one that worked for me

    I've figured out how it's done, but it ain't for the faint hearted!
    (Involves a Hex-Editor to search for colour codes, a Resource Editor & something to alter the icons.)

    Here's my version, it's the 7068 one from the original post but edited & use the original instructions etc to install it:
    taskmgr.zip

    Generator's version is nice too, but I have one thing to say about it.

    The blue is too dark. It's a little hard to see against the black background. You might want to make it a little bit lighter.

    I think it's the blue squared background... Hows this?

    I'd love it if I could get a set of icons like Mr. Grim's, the progress bar, and this app made using the following RGB:

    158/180/255 - it is a very soothing (on the eyes) baby blue that I like a lot better than a brilliant blue or dark blue.

    In fact, if you use the black - RC theme here, all the text goes to a color very similar in nature.

    Well, now you can see the lines better, but the numbers under the two bars are still really hard to see. I had to look real closely at the screen to see the two numbers. The CPU Usage was like 53% or 58% while the Memory was 1.87 GB or 1.97 GB.

    Don't get me wrong, I like that shade of blue, but it just doesn't work with the black background.
