Thanks in advance.

A few questions,

Recently i've changed some sort of setting so that when I press Ctrl+Alt+Del
It gives me a window similar to this

How do I change it back so that when I press Ctrl+Alt+Del, it goes to my Task Manager right away?

Secondly, I've been having problems accessing .msi files, I think it had something to do with this program I used called RegSeeker, which in turn had helped me clear some unused, and unwanted REGs, but in the process I think I deleted something, so now I can't access or open .MSI files, any solutions?
I've already run Ad-Aware, scanned my computer, it's virus/mal/spyware free.

Lastly, I've been having slow delay when I open up "My Computer"
The folder literally has a flashlight rolling back and forth for 1-5 minutes before it displays the five icons.
I've already
-Reinstalled my Printers and updated them
-Defragged my Computer
-Did a Disk Cleanup
-Scanned computer, cleaned it
-Made the icons smaller

Thanks in advance guys

Hi Ashida, welcome to Geeks to Go!

As for your first question, you can change that by doing the following:
Open "User Accounts" in the Control Panel, click "change the way users log on or off". If both of these are ticked then it will revert back to the Task Manager on Ctrl+Alt+Del.

As for your last two problems, I strongly suggest you take a visit to the malware forum, there may be something hiding on your system that is causing these problems that the ad-aware and virus scan didn't pick up. Follow these instructions.

Cheers :whistling:
