Q: Can't open task manager

I have recently started using Windows 8. But after a couple of days, I started facing a problem with the Task Manager. When I press Ctrl+Shift+ESC, the Task manager opens for a second and closes immediately. I ve tried using other ways to open the Task manager, like right clicking on the taskbar and then the Ctrl+Alt+Del option too. Im facing the same problem. Please help.
