may sound funny but try ctrl alt and the del key on the number pad.
Make sure num lock is on.
Has this just started to happen or always been like this

Which means that Windows has not disabled Ctrl+Alt+Del.
But maybe the Task Manager is having some problems opening.
Follow the steps below to look missing\corrupt system files:
Start->Run. Type cmd. Press Enter.
In the Command-Prompt Window, type sfc /SCANONCE. Press Enter.
Follow the instructions by the System File Checker.
(Note:The scan will done on next reboot, so u will be prompted for a reboot.)

For cmd:
Download and run XP_FIX.EXE from the following page, this might fix cmd
http://www.visualtour.com/downloads/.


For task manager, follow the steps below:
  • Download the following reg-fix(from Kelly's Korner)
    taskmgrenable.reg
  • Reboot.
  • Check if Task manger works, otherwise continue to next step
  • Download the following reg-fix(from Kelly's Korner)
    TaskManager_Reset.reg
Also, can u post a HijackThis log.

  • Download the following reg-fix(from Kelly's Korner)
    taskmgrenable.reg
  • Reboot.
  • Check if Task manger works, otherwise continue to next step
  • Download the following reg-fix(from Kelly's Korner)

"Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"DisableTaskMgr"=dword:00000000"



am i supposed to add this some where? if so where? :tazz:

Looks like your file association for .reg files is changed.
Right-click on the .reg file, choose Open With and select Registry Editor.
