    try a repair install, keep in mind that you will have to reinstall sp1 also if you have done that

    Just double-click anywhere on the window border of the Task Manger. What you are looking at is the Simple View.

    xxbigeyedfishxx - you really should be careful about suggesting a reload when it isn't necessary.

    DON'T repair install this happened to me to once before. All you have to do is double click on it. I was freakin out for a few minuites but once i realized how easy it was i felt stupid. OH well that should fix it :)

    Also with the TaskManager sometimes the Tabs can become hidden if you are using a custom theme. Most of them dont do this but just change the theme and all will be fixed.
    Thought I would post that so that people dont reinstall because the tabs dont show up.
