Hello and welcome to the forum.
Generally this happens when you are viewing the processes tab and you are sorting on a column other than the name column.
To stop this behavior simply click on the word "Name" in the column header. Click once to sort ascending click again to sort descending

I have the exact same problem as Tevran! I have tried searching everywhere and couldn't find any solutions to this. Please any help would be most appreciated.

Under options (I think, haven't used the W7 task manager recently) there should be an option for refresh speed, which you can set to paused.

It's under view in the task manager
