task manager not loading?

by liam182 / January 24, 2006 7:20 AM PST

not my laptop this time but my friends.

When using CTRL ALT DEL task manager doesnt load up, nor does right clicking on the task bar. It shows hour glass for a split second as if it is going to open it but it doesn't.

Any ideas why? could it be linked to the longer than normal loading time for windows when booting pc up, and sometimes slow running? Other than them points everything is fine.

Ive tried restore but it hasnt soted it.
any help appreciated.
thanks. Liam

liam, Go to the link below and under the letter "T" scroll down to "Task Manager", "Task Manager - Control/Alt/Delete - Doesn't work" where you'll find some possible fixes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
