Shut off my Dell last night. When to sign in in the morning and when I did the Ctrl, Alt, Delete - nothing happened. is it shot or can i fix it ej

possible fixes:
1) run antispyware and antivirus
2) In XP PRO then try turning the Task Manager Disable facility on and then off again. It should be set to off or 'not configured'.

For turning Task manager On/Off

Start, Run, type gpedit.msc,OK

In left hand pane Double click Admin Options.
Double click System,
Click Ctrl, Alt, Delete.

Then in right hand pane double click Ctrl, Alt, Del. This opens up 'Task Manager Disable/Enable' facility..

Setting on radio buttons should be either disabled or 'not configured' If so select enable (this turns Task Manager Off), Apply, OK.

Left alt key not functioning in pagemaker


If you cannot access your Task Manager when Pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Del, this means you have a virus on your system which has disabled the task manager. If you have a good antivirus like Norton, Kaspersky or McAfee try scanning to detect the virus.


Format your system, but before doing that makesure you backup your data before doing that.

Ctrl+ALT+Del does not launch Task Manager on my MobilePro 900, why?

The Ctrl-alt-del short cut to the Task Manager is not on the MobilePro 900. To bring up Task Manager on the MobilePro 900, hold the "Alt" key and then tap the task bar with the stylus simultaneously. A menu with "Task Manager" and "Properties" will be displayed, select Task Manager.
