Hi Folkz

Lately when ever one of my programs crashes/non responds i usually open the task manager and kill the program/process. But now when a program becomes unresponsive and i open task manager.. all i get is the icon in the task bar/icon tray and i cant even right click on it to show the task manager or close it .. eventually the msg comes up saying "etc etc is not responding and will shutdown" followed by the usual "do u want to send a report to microsft etc " msg. the program closes but i can get to the task manager.. the icon shows but i cant close it unless i reboot.. which works as per normal after the reboot, but once one program crashes and then shuts down.. it wont show after that,.

any help much apprceciated :-)
