Default task manager

someone brought me a comp to look at. all they wanted was wga removed but i found a problem with the recycle bin and task manager. the recycle bin was easy but i can't figure out how to fix task manager. the only page that comes up is "applications" w/o the tab. none of the other tabs are there, nor is the menubar or titlebar. ( the attached snapshot is just a referrence ; i couldn't get a screen of their's so i used a cropped image of mine.) i thought maybe they didn't log in with administrative priveleges but that wasn't it. does anyone know what could be wrong w/their task manager and how to fix it?

next to End Task, in any clear area, just double click it and it will return to normal

okay. i'm officially an idiot. in my defence, though, i have to say that i was sure i tried that. you know, whether you're trying to figure something out in a game or it's an app or whatever, there are certain key combos, right-clicking, double-clicking, drag-and-drop.... i thought i tried everything that would [or could] apply in this case even hitting alt like you do in vista to get the menu bar. thx much, ware_z. i feel like a dolt but they'll think i'm a genius ;0)
