    I've noticed the same thing. When I want the task manager under normal operation, it works fine. But if there's a hung program, it sometimes takes up to a full minute to come up or doesn't come up at all.

    The solution I've found that works for me is to right-click an empty area of the Taskbar and pick Task Manager from the menu. That seems to do the trick 95% of the time. This trick works in all version of Windows, btw.

    Right click the bar next to the start menu & follow the advise from there.

    Are you using XP? Look for Task Manager. If it is not xp this thread should be in 'other operating systems'.

    right-click in an empty area. Like where there's no button for a program, or a quick launch icon.
