Hello. Whenever I hit control alt delete instead of going to the programs currently running it goes to this display that shows the owner and I can select to log off or disconnect. I can't choose to do anything else like check what programs are running or RAM usage. Hope you can help me fix it!
Thanks-Dan

Hi dannyyukon!!

Go to START-->RUN and type sfc /scannow. Please note the space between sfc and /scannow. You may need your XP CD to do this. What this does is check your windows files and repairs/replaces any files that are corrupt/missing. Once the blue bar goes away, remove your xp cd (if you had to insert it) and reboot your computer.

Post back how things are going after doing this.

Hey dannyyukon.

Could you please hit CTRL+ALT+DEL again, and when the window opens up, could you please double-click the border for me and see if task manager returns to normal?

Thanks,

Fenor
