Customer Question
The "Activity Monitor" no...

The "Activity Monitor" no longer shows process status when I open it.

Technician's Assistant: What exactly is having screen issues?

I think the tool is called the "Activity Monitor" in English. My system is running the Swedish language variant and the tool is there called "aktivitets hanteraren". It is hte main tool in Windows for observing resource usage.

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your computer? And the version of Windows?

Ok, its a Sony Vaio. Not sure about the exact model number. The thing is the toool works for all the other resource monitoring. It is only the process info t4hat is now always blank. The problem is new. I hanve never seen this before and have had this laptop for at least 5 years.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of.

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
