 There's nothing wrong so to say that i know of but something funny has been happening. Whenever I hit ctrl+alt+delete task manager comes up but then minimizes right away. I can see it still in the startup menu so when I move my mouse down to the startup menu to click on it, it then disappears from the startup menu. Really strange. just curious if anybody has any ideas why this may be happening and if I can fix it. everything else is running smooth as a babies bottom.

 you mean the options tab in task manager. thats the problem I can't get it to stay up in order to click on anything. It's not even up long enough for me to see anything.

Have you run any virus and adware/spyware scans lately, nelson? That is where I would begin.
