Re: [XPPro] Ctrl Alt Del not bringing up Task Manager Window. Hello all,
Thanks for all your replies. A polite and respectful reminder: From the opening post I mentioned "TheJoker" had suggested a reference be made to the work that had been done already to help anyone offering me help in this forum.
"joepwpb": Windows Repair (All in One); already tried (see above polite and respectful reminder). Re-Enable Task Manager: This did not work.
"dave" (1st post): (see above polite and respectful reminder); but the answer is that that does work.
"dandelion": I was not referring to any logon action, but I thank-you for the suggested link.
"art22gg": On this computer, with the current configuration, the Task Manager window does not appear when pressing Ctrl/Alt/Del.
"dave" (2nd post): This is not anything to do with logging on (see polite and respectful reminder). Regarding ctrl+shift+esc (see polite and respectful reminder), but in short, that does work.
Thank-you all again and I await any further ideas Take care.

said by veryfat:A possible clarification: ctrl+alt+del is handled by winlogon. The two different things that winlogon might do are:
This is not anything to do with logging on (see polite and respectful reminder).
1. Just run task manager
2. Give you a 'menu' of things you might choose to do, including
logging off, changing password, running task manager, etc.
Since ctrl+alt+del is handled by winlogon, it's not at all obvious to me that the logon configuration has nothing to do with ctrl+alt+del handling, especially when some of the screens involved in logon configuration mention ctrl+alt+del.
Anyway, that's now irrelevant: see my next post.

FWIW - I checked my XP Pro machine that and it brings up the Task Manager as well. I am used to it bringing up the log on/off screen BUT - I have my user set to log in with the password when I click the user. I don't have it set to enter the password when logging in.
