Hi Sammy

Thanks fr the scannow option, it worked and I now have the GREEN task manager back. I went through all the instrructions again and renamed the old file tasmgr.exe.green then pasted the blue one in but it still goes to the syswow64 folder and NOT the system32 folder is the problem that I am running 64bit windows .... I have renamed the old file back again and it works as green but I really would have loved the blue.

Thanx

I noticed that the first post says 64bit and 32bit, but the file being downloaded only says 32bit.

I wonder if this is really 64bit compatible...and if so, if there are extra steps to get it working on 64bit....

Ok I think that one problem is that the person who made these files failed to insert this into his readme file, lucky it was added on the web site, also I added it to the OP.

Note: For build 7068 and up (7264, 7600 etc...) use the 7068 version

I don't know why it wants to go to syswow64 folder, they way I did it was use the Take Control Tool with Admin Privilege and not the reg keys and following each step carefully. Make sure you use the taskmng from the 7068, I don't know which one you are using since the readme file doesn't say.

Again I'm sorry you are having trouble with this.

@johngalt this works for me on 64 bit Win 7 also

I see by your screen shot that it is indeed 64bit compatable Klaw .. why then will my blue taskmgr.exe not paste into the system32 folder instead it pastes into the syswow64 folder. Anyone with any suggestions I'd love to hear from you. I am using the 7066 version Sammy. I did not use the reistry option either I merely took control of the file.

Thanks everyone for your input, I have discovered why it was behaving strangely. By default i am using teracopy to copy files and as soon as I changed that to use the inbuilt filecopy it worked and I now have a blue task manager

Edit well I'm glad that you now have blue taskmgr, I was running out of things to try.

Well enjoy the Blue, I know I do.
