Missing Task Manger on XP

This is the strangest Task Manger that I have ever seen. When this happens just reboot and move on.
This machine is still acting very odd though......hmm

Bookmark: Moveuser.exe and Win32_UserProfile WMI


The Windows Resource Kit tool Moveuser.exe is incompatible with Windows Vista. In earlier versions of Windows, Moveuser.exe is used to map an existing local user account profile to a new domain profile when a computer in a workgroup is joined to a domain. Alternatively the tool can also used to map an existing domain account profile to another new domain account profile. However, you cannot use the Moveuser.exe tool to perform these tasks on a Windows Vista-based computer.
