Your are right, the should be close window, do you want to live with it or try system restore, or last know good config, or repair the XP with CD?

Hey there Canus, pressing Alt F4 does not bring up task manager the correct buttons are "Ctrl + Alt + Del". Or you can goto your takbar and rightclick and go down to "Task Manager". Alt F4 is used to exit apllications.

Cool :whistling:

What so when you try pressing "Ctrl + Alt + Del" Nothing happends??? Try going to "C:\Windows\system32\" and look for "taskmgr.exe" make sure its named correctly then open it from there and let me know waht happends.

Or if you Right click on the gray area in your taskbar in the bottom of the monitor and choose "Task Manager" does it come up then?
