    Try:

    * Logging out and back in.

    * Repair Permissions on the drive in Disk Utility.

    * Trying from a different user account. (If it works there, you might look for Activity Monitor stuff in your preferences folder and throw it out. Your customizations of the app will be lost, but if the prefs were corrupt this gives the app the chance to make a fresh copy.)

    ...or delete the preferences file. Search for "Activity Monitor" in a Finder window, right-click (or CTRL-click) on com.apple.ActivityMonitor.plist and trash it. Restart Activity Monitor and cross your fingers.
