Thanks for the verification.

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).

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.

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.

Well enjoy the Blue, I know I do.

I installed the blue task manager and it worked perfectly however when i booted up today this is all I get when I start my task manager. Hopefully someone has some idea what is going on. I am running windows 7 version 7264

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.
