    I believe there's a registry key that
    controls this. Have you tried there?

    If you haven't heard about registry keys.... do not attempt this solo!

    My advice is buy Norton SystemWorks 2003 PRO. It's an awesome software package, that has built in tools that you can run and cure most of the typical things that may hinder your machine.

    Have you tried right clicking on the taskbar and choosing task manager? If you can reach it from there, perhaps it's a keyboard issue.

    Have you tottaly lost it, or is it minimized?

    If it is minimized, just double click the window
    Don't look for a way out.

    i-meals,

    Are you using the welcome screen option. Go to the control panel, select User Accounts, then select "Change the way users log on and off". Is "use the welcome screen" checked? If so, uncheck and apply options. Ctrl-Alt-Del should now work.

    Right click on desktop/New/Shortcut..... and create these two shortcuts.


    C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32,SHExitWindowsEx 2 [enter in Command line]
    Restart [Give this name]



    C:\WINDOWS\RUNDLL32.EXE shell32,SHExitWindowsEx 1 [enter in Command line]
    Shutdown [give this name]


    Clicking on these two will Restart or Shutdown

    Set keyboard shortcut for these two by right clicking on icon/Properties/Shortcut/Shortcut Key = Ctrl+Alt+ [your selection...example S for shutdown / R for restart]

    Done: When you want to restart press Ctrl+Alt+R for restart
    or Ctrl+Alt+S for shutdown.

    try this:


    goto start
    goto run
    type gpedit.msc
    expand the menu entitled "administrative templates"
    expand the system selection
    select "ctrl+alt+delete options"
    on the right side of the dialog, there will be 3 options:

    remove task manager
    remove lock computer
    remove change password
    remove logoff

    right click where it says "remove task manager" and select "Properties" select disable

    complete those steps for other 3 options


    that should work for ya. If that doesn't work, reply to this thread saying "ub3r: it didn't work" with details on whatever happend.
