off topic - Redundant Task Manager RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • I notice my computer slowing down to a crawl. When I open task manager I find as many as 20 or so "task manager" programs are running in task manager. How can I remedy this?

    However, there should only be a single process called Task Manager, which will appear when you use Ctrl-Alt-Del to launch Task Manager to view running processes. If you reboot the PC and immediately launch Task Manager and see more than one instance, I'd say that the PC is possibly infected by something and a full virus scan with an up to date scanner would be the first order of business.
