    Processes Tab Missing from Task Manager

    Over the past week or so, my Task Manager in Vista Business has changed.
    When I launch the Task Manager now, only the list of tasks appears... there
    aren't even any tabs in this window and only ESC will close it. It's almost
    as if I suddenly have "Task Manager Lite" on my system and it doesn't matter
    if launch it from right-clicking the task bar or doing a CTRL+ALT+DEL to get
    the menu.

    Does anyone have any ideas about why this might have happened?
    Thanks,
    Kim.

    I found the answer on TechSpot.com -- if you double-click on the empty space
    to the right of the tabs, they disappear. You have to double-click again to
    get this area of the window back.
