Ctrl + alt + delete: instead of a menu of auto start Task Manager?

I was wondering how to do ctrl + alt + del open Manager tasks immediately instead of a menu to open upwards and then having to choose the Task Manager.

Thank you.

Hi Brian.

It seems to me that you have disabled the Welcome screen at first upward.  You can check this by going to the "Start" menu and then go to 'Control Panel'.  Click on "User accounts" and then click on the option "Change the way users log on and outside."  You should now see two options.  The first is "Use welcome screen" and, with your current explanation, that has a checkbox that is empty.  Click the checkbox to enable the Welcome screen, then exit to the desktop, and then restart your machine.  After reboot, you should then see the Welcome screen with a list of all users. (If more than one.)  Sign in and then try Ctrl + Alt + Delete.  The task manager should now appear.

If you think that my answers are useful please vote and mark as a possible answer. Thank you.

    You can try to check the HARD disk using a disk HARD Drive Fitness Test.

    Run the test and check if the HARD drive is OK.
    No, then you will need a new HARD drive and you need to reinstall the operating system.

  • Recent Ms update causes of lag when you use win + L, alt + tab to switch apps or ctrl + alt + delete

    Lately, we updates Microsoft has introduced some lag in my system.  I did a restore of last week, the 10th and it was fixed, and the last round of updates automatic introduced the problem again.  Basically, here's the question: when I hit win - L to lock the machine, I get a good 10-20 second delay before it crashes, even with nothing running.  Same with ctrl-alt-delete, or when I alt - tab to go a game of running a browser open.  Now I realize that some of them are more intensive applications in resources, but I could do all these things before the updates almost instantly.  I don't know what are those who have caused the it.  Has anyone else seen elsewhere?

    For the record, I use Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit on a Core2Duo built home 3 GHz with 8gigs of ram box.  GeForce 8800 GTX w / 768 MB of ram at 1600 x 1200 on the screen.  So go to a window of the Explorer browser should not really be a problem.

    It is a new installation of 64-bit, and Security Essentials is the only anti - anything produced, I had about it.  In fact, to my embarrassment, I fixed the problem shortly after the announcement of my question.  I did a full system scan, it finds a couple of trojan files (probably my uh...) "inprivate browsing"). "  After their withdrawal, I once more lock the system instantly, immediately pull the Task Manager and change fast application.

    Thanks for the tips.  I would normally uninstall updates one at a time, but I was looking forward to kind of and thought that I would use a shotgun instead of a scalpel.

  • CTRL + ALT + DELETE no longer works on my PC

    I used to be able to press CTRL + ALT + DELETE when my PC has pick up in a program.

    What is your Version of XP and the Service Pack?

    Describe your current antivirus and software anti malware situation: McAfee, Symantec, Norton, Spybot, AVG, Avira!, MSE, Panda, Trend Micro, CA, Defender, ZoneAlarm, PC Tools, Comodo, etc..

    If your system is at a standstill and you must use the Task Manager to kill a process, it is not normal and your system has a problem that you can solve.

    If your task manager has been disabled (unless you have disabled it on purpose), then you certainly have another problem to accompany your first problem.

    The usual advice along the lines of "something has been disabled in Group Policy" and that's probably true, but if you are using XP Home, is not Group Policy Editor in XP Home and which is not really you tell where to look in group policy, even if you run the Group Policy Editor.   You need to know how to fix it.

    Here is a complete solution that works for all versions of XP and requires no hunting around to find where things have been disabled in the Group Policy Editor.  If you happened to have documentation for Group Policy registry locations, there is no hunting, but most people don't have documentation.

    Unless you have disabled these tools on purpose, chances are good that your system has a malware infection.  The malware knows what tools you use to try to find and remove, for the malware disables the things you are more likely to consume and prevents them from running if you can't find it.

    All malicious software tools you currently use or have used failed to protect your system.

    The malware will be happy you trick into thinking that you need to so something drastic to fix your system - as a facility repair, system restore point or a total reinstallation of XP.  This is what it would be like you, but these measures are not necessary.

    You must solve the immediate problem of the tools does not, then scan your system for malware when you are finished.

    No matter what kind of malware you've used analytical tools, they are unlikely to solve this problem, because they cannot tell if the changes made to your system have been on purpose (you or an administrator who makes them) or some malware changed them, so the analysis tools will let these things alone (it's usually a good thing).

    If your task manager is afflicted in this way, there are probably other things that also do not work - like the registry editor, System Restore and the command prompt, so fix them all at once even if you have not discovered they are broken again.

    These commands from registry removes the registry entries that are stop opening programs.  Although the registry entries do not exist, these commands are safe to run.

    Before making any changes to your registry, back up the registry with this free and popular tool:

    http://www.SnapFiles.com/get/ERUNT.html

    Open Notepad to create a new text file:

    Click Start, run and enter in the box:

    notebook

    Click OK to open a new Notepad file.

    Copy and paste the following lines of text into the new Notepad file.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    "DisableTaskMgr" = -.
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    "DisableRegistryTools" = -.
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\System]

    "DisableCMD" = -.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesSystem\\\]
    "DisableTaskMgr" = -.
    [HKEY_USERS\.default\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
    "DisableTaskMgr" = -.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]
    "DisableCAD" = DWORD: 00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore]
    "DisableConfig" = -.
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore]
    "DisableSR" = -.

    Save the new text file with extension .reg on your desktop or somewhere you can remember with a name you can remember, something like:

    enableit.reg

    After you save the file, close Notepad.

    Locate the file enableit.reg on your desktop and double-click it.

    Alternatively, you can right-click on the enableit.reg file, choose open with... and select the registry editor.

    Answer in the affirmative to the question... Are you sure you want to add the information in the registry?

    You should then see a message that information has been registered in the register.

    If the registry editor has also been disabled, you will not be able to run registry changes to fix the rest of the problems, then you must first activate the command registry editor run.  Even if the registry editor is not broken, these commands are safe to run.

    Click Start, run and enter in the box (copy/paste would be safer) the following text:

    Tracking Add HKCU/v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0

    Click OK and answer Yes, if you are prompted with a message of crash.

    Click Start, run and enter in the box (copy/paste would be safer) the following text:

    Tracking Add HKLM/v DisableRegistryTools /t REG_DWORD /d 0

    Click OK and answer Yes, if you are prompted with a message of crash.

    Now that the registry editor has been enabled, you can run the enableit.reg file to troubleshoot issues.

    Depending on the circumstances, your tools can work right away, but go ahead to avoid the question "did you restart your system?" later, and restart your system at the time of trial to be sure things work again.

    Allow the tools in this way only solves the symptom of malware infection, but does not solve the real problem (the system is currently or has been infected by malware) so you're not quite done yet - your system might still be infected.

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs can solve any problems.

    Malwarebytes (MMFA): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    You can also delete the enableit.reg file when you are finished.

    Do, or do not. There is no test.

  • No mode of the Tablet CTRL + ALT + DELETE key or Windows security?

    I just bought a laptop / Tablet HP TX2-1020US that came with Vista Home Premium.  Good so far.  I upgraded to OS to Vista Ultimate and my original SBS2008 domain-joined and worked on a large too.

    The problem is: when I'm in tablet mode, no button is "Windows Security" referred to in the prompt "press CTRL + ALT + DELETE or Windows security" in the starting System.  I end up having to convert portable mode, press CAD and convert again in tablet mode and use the biometric login each time.  Same thing to unlock the machine after an invocation of the screensaver, etc..

    HP support says they don't support "as sold" configuration, even if I am invited for an upgrade as it sets up for the first time, I am on my own if I do.  Not a very "the computer's personal again' approach to customer service... ;-)

    I thought I could reassign a touch on the surface of the Tablet--maybe the button "Mediasmart" I wouldn't need otherwise.  But the upgrade apparently took a toll on that too since the dialog box control Tablet PC Panel, in the general and the tabs button, I decidedly enigmatic after the upgrade and the tablet button ID is displayed as @BttnCmn.DLL,-2, -9, -7, etc. (for example the change in screen orientation button is @BttnCmn.DLL,-9).

    I would appreciate a solution that is running boards - the need to press CTRL + ALT + DELETE and brings me directly to where a slip of the finger is a login, or a reallocation of button so I could tap without having to disable-tablet-mode each time.

    Thanks in advance,
    Richard

    And one possible answer is:

    1. Administrative Tools | Local security policy
    2. (Elevation of privilege)
    3. Local policies | Security options
    4. Interactive logon to change: don't require CTRL + ALT + DELETE to "Undefined" to "Enabled".
    5. Close local security policy tool.

    CTRL + ALT + DELETE screen is bypassed, and the login screen is used instead (for which the fingerprint reader works fine).

    Thank you

  • Logon screen takes forever to appear after pressing Ctrl + Alt + Delete on Windows 7 Enterprise

    I hope someone could help me with that.

    We have recently upgraded to Windows 7 Enterprise and have some problems with some of our laptops.

    Looks like you may have a virus or other malware. Get your updated antivirus program and boot into Safe Mode. Note that some viruses can hide from your normal antivirus program, so you really need to scan in Safe Mode. To enter in Safe Mode when you turn on first, press F8 on every seconds until you get the menu, and then select Safe Mode. Then run a complete system scan.

    If that suits him fine. If this is not the case, use system restore to go back to an earlier date at the beginning of the problem. To run system restore, click Start-> programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> system restore. Click on the box that says show more restore points.

    You can check the corrupted system files. Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above does not help. Click START, and then type CMD in the search box, right-click on CMD. EXE and click run as administrator. Then, from the command prompt type sfc/scannow.

    Finally if all else fails, you can look at the rather cryptic system event log. To make, click Start-> Control Panel-> administration-> event viewer tools.

    When you get your system in good working condition, I invite you to back up your system up to an external hard drive and make it regular periodic updates.

  • Why don't I have to use Ctrl + Alt + Delete to use my computer?

    My PC starts directly from the windows 7 desktop.  How ever I can not click on the Start button.  If I open a desktop application I can't click any function on it once it is open.

    To have access to my PC, I have to Ctrl-Alt-Delete.  So I have to left click anywhere on the screen (not any text or button).  Then I can click on the Cancel button.  Once I did, I can use my programs as usual.  I have to do this every time I start my PC.  This problem exists from the outset, even though I have repeatedly re-installed Win 7 as a 32-bit and a 64 bit OS.  Since the first office sometimes.
    I have also not drag and drop functionality.  I can't drag my around my office desktop icons, for example in the trash.  This was not always the case and it takes place after the service of some or other update.  I spent this morning of uninstallation of updates as much as possible, until finally after a reboot, I could drag and drop from the desktop icons.
    A program that was unaffected by the problem of drag / move is iTunes.  I can drag tracks/albums from iTunes to a windows Explorer folder, but not a file Explorer windows to another.  I have to use the dialog box copy - paste on the right click of the mouse.
    What this problem is, it also affects Google Chrome by preventing the features left click on any of the control buttons.  By clicking a new tab, close...
    I'd appreciate a lot any input on that.
    My best regards,
    Duncan

    I have a laptop Toshiba Equium a100-549, about 3 years, Windows XP Home Edition.
    Everything worked very well so far. When starting my computer, I received the message:

    A disk read error occurred press ctrl + alt + delete
    I don't want to lose my data

    Please please I need some advice what to do

    Kind regards
    AGM

    > I don't want to lose my data

    Well. Everyone knows that a HARD disk problem can happen and all of a sudden you may lose all the data stored on the HARD drive.
    That is why it s always recommended to backup the data on additional HDD, DVD, etc.

    I'm not sure if this will help but try this:
    Try to boot from the disk Win XP (NOT the Toshiba Recovery disk) and press r. means repair and should start the repair console.
    The similar DOS window should open and there, you can use a command:
    CHKDSK drive/p/r

    The chkdsk command checks the specified drive and repairs or recovers the drive if the drive requires it.

    More details can be found here:

    If that does not help, then you need to reinstall new OS.
