Task Manager processes help...
« on: July 08, 2005, 05:01:39 PM »
This is only happening today and happened a few times before not a lot...Im using Windows XP Professional...

when i pull up Task Manager and go to processes under the "User Names" spot...all of the processes are blank...

i could see the processes names and everything being run its just i cant see whether its being run by Administrator or System...can someone tell me how to get it back to normal or how it went that way? thanks

      OK, you're lucky, my w2k doesn't have that User Name column.  :(
      I just figured that would be where you would find it.
      How about ticking the box at the bottom?

        1771:

        What Windows XP Service Pack do you have installed?  (To find out, right click My Computer and select Properties.  In System Properties, click the General tab.  The service pack number will be listed under the System heading.)

        This seems normal behaviour. It may be due to you having created an administrator account at the installation of Windows XP Professional.

        Welcome to the forum, Maragtas!

        1771:

        Raptor is probably right.  

        Have you tried selecting Show Processes From All Users?  If not, click on the check box and see if that makes a difference.
