    This is indeed 64-Bit compatible. Look at the my screenshot:
    Thanks for the verification.

    Ok I think that one problem is that the person who made 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 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
    Sammy, thanks for the clarification. I'll make sure to do this when I get done DLing and installing the RTM. hell, I might even make the one I requested myself (using RGB 158/180/255).

    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
    Yikes - good to know. I use a third party file manager called Xplorer^2
    xplorer˛ Windows File Manager (Explorer replacement) and it has a build in extended file copy process as well - now that I know this I'll be sure to use Windows Explorer for this.

    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.

    You can double click it just about anywhere other than the area shown in your pic. This has been true of TaskMan for a long time and has caused countless re-installs due to undetectable malware.

    Double-clicking causes it. Long standing undocumented feature.

    Haha I remember when that happened to me first time, I think I was on XP and I double clicked the frame and all of a sudden, everything disappears except the list. Figured I'd double click again and voila, it comes back haha.

    I believe it is called small footprint mode - not sure why anyone would want to use that feature.

    Yeah I find it pretty useless. I guess one of the developers that wrote taskmgr was just bored and decided to waste his time with this and nobody cared about it.
