Default weird issue with task manager

Just wondering here, but I am having some problems task manager, for some reason the processes tab does not show the name of the applications they are tied to. So for example it will say its a System Processes, and how much memory its using. When I try to go into the select columns it has Iage names greyed out. I am not sure what would do this but I may have somthing to do with the computer (its an old Compaq Presario) any help appreciated.

Not sure, but was it a used computer bought from a business?

Is the column even shown? Under "View", you should be able to select what columns you actually want to have shown for each process.

Which OS are you using?
