ctrl alt delete problem

I'm not really sure how to describe this, but when I hit ctrl+alt+delete, it no longer has the blue bar at the top where i can close it. It doesn't even have the tabs to change from tasks viewer to processes, networks, etc. It is just a gray box that shows the open tasks. It wasn't always like this. Any ideas what is wrong? Thanks

Nothing is wrong...

It's just in a special mode that is a feature that few seem to know about.

Blog post about it if you want to turn it off.

Try double clicking on either the right or left border of the Task Manager Window.

Hope this helps.
