Default here is a challenge to u

Okay, this problem is not huge but I would like it fixed. Everytime I open the system processes thingy (cntrl+alt+del) I can't close it. The whole top bar has gone away. So now red X button and I can't change it to processes or anywhere else.

So can anyone come up a way of fixing this? And no, I won't reformat just because of this.

Also, a right click on it at the system tool bar does not open up any options, so can't close it from there.

Double click on the grey area next to the End Task button.

That hides/unhides the top menu bar and the status bar.

No need to reformat!!

Open up the task manager and double click the top bar (where the menu used to be like Proccesses, users, etc... including the red x) This should make the menue appear back. I had a problem that sounds just the same, and, if I read your post right you have the same problem.
