This problem is easy to fix, the Task Manager is running in "tiny footprint mode". To correct this, simply double-click on the border around the window and it will return to its normal state. To place task manager back in "tiny footprint mode" again, double click again on the border around the window.

or:
To work around this behavior, perform the following steps:

  1. Click Start, and then click Run.
  2. Type taskmgr.exe.
  3. Hold down CTRL+ALT+SHIFT at the same time, and while holding them down press ENTER.

You can download "glary utilities" It is a free download. This program fixes all registrly errors, cleans temp folders, optimizes pc, removes spyware and adware, and so much much more!
It should fix the problem.

I recommend this program to everyone. It is like a free version of Regcure.

You can also do a system restore and set the computer back to any day you want and the computer will pick up from there.

My Acer Aspire 5552-3691 has a blank screen with the cursor on it... The widows wont load up but it boots up fine amd everything. Please help


The user profile may be corrupt. After it boots up, try pressing CTRL+ALT+DEL and see if a menu comes up that allows you to start the task manager. If it does allow you to start the task manager, you can try clicking "File" then "New Task" then type "explorer.exe" and then click OK to see if it brings up a desktop. You can also type "iexplore.exe" and see if it launches the browser. If any of this works, then use the task manager to launch "control.exe" (control panel) and use it to create an new administrator account if you only have one account active. Then restart the machine and log in as the new user you just created and see if it loads the desktop. If this is successful you can just use the new account and copy any files needed from the old corrupted profile.

Another thing to try if you can invoke explorer.exe is to open My Computer, right-click on the system drive and try and run the disk error check from the tools tab. It will tell you it cannot do so and ask if you want to schedule the check for the next time Window is started. Select "automatically fix errors" and check OK. Restart the machine and see if the disk checking utility finds and corrects the problem.

Screen name on Hp 2000 says locked underneath it. Password tried too many times. Need to redo it with a new name and password


Not sure if this will work without some user's account being open, but try starting Task Manager. Press Ctrl/Alt/Delete. Press all 3 keys at the sme time. There should be a "reset password" option. But again, I don't know if you can do this unless a user is already signed in. If it doesn't work, the computer should have a "public" or "guest" account. When it wants your password, look for "change users". Click on that and select he guest, or public, or whatever it is labelled, account, and you'll be in the computer, but not in your owner's account. And if you try the task manager/change password from the guest account it may not let you do anything with your owner's account. If all else fails, call HP at 800-474-6836.

The windows does not asking the password it directly loading my personal settings...even i changed the password ....i cannot accessing the password protection..please what i can i do for this??


Hi,

First of all, Open the Control Panel, then go to User Accounts.

Double click the user accounts. A window will pop out with options with user account info.

In the "Pick a Task" section, select the option "Change the way users log on or off." After selecting it, a window will show two options with check boxes.

The first option with the check box is "Use the Welcome Screen." Turn this option off (uncheck it).

Do not select the second option "Fast User Switching," uncheck it also. So, we have to keep both the options unchecked. Your issue will be resolved with these steps.

Task manager


Hi,

If you are certain that you are logged on as administrator or has administrator privileges, then a virus is preventing your opening of the Task Manager. Additionally, the same virus is likewise preventing access to the Folder Option and the MSCONFIG function.

Of course the correct solution would be to run a full deep virus scan and delete detected ones. You can also try running RRT.exe to force access to the above functions.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
