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

Try restarting your PC

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.
