I press control alt delete to close programs and it will not come up. Any ideas how to get it back? My keys (control, alt, delete) are still working as I use them in some programs.

Hi.
I've had this same problem myself.
Click start.
Click run.
Type regedit
Click/navigate to this branch:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Microsoft \ Windows \ CurrentVersion \ Policies\ System

On the right you can either
delete the value named DisableTaskMgr
or
double click it and change the value to 0 (that's the way mine is set).
close the registry edit.

Hope this helps, Matt

hey Matt,

Thanks for the quick reply. When in policies, there is only one for explorer not for system. Any ideas?
