CTRL+ALT+DEL Isn't Working in 2000 OS

By dgomez ·
CTRL+ALT+DEL is not working in Windows 2000 OS after initial login, it does work at login screen but after that to try and get to task manager it doesn't work. I have installed SP4 too this PC but I have also installed it on a number of other PC and I haven?t every had a problem that I know of. Does anybody have information on why the (CTRL+ALT+DEl) Function would stop working after initial login in Windows2000 OS? Please Help. Thank You so Much for any Help and God Bless!

Sincerely,

That's a very common symptom of the Klez worms. If you haven't already done so, update your email scanner and scan the drive. You can get a very good AV scanner for free here.

You will probably find you have an infected taskmgr.exe file.

There are also free removals tools that will look fot Klez and remove it if needed.

To access your task manager in the future if Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't wotk, you can use:

>CTRL + SHIFT + ESC and the Task Manager will be launched.

>Just right click your windows toolbar and select Task Manager

Good luck

I should explain I mean you can RIGHT CLICK the Quick Launch (Lower) toolbar and not the Upper Explorer bar.

well I have information on why it might not work but that kinda depends on whether the W2K machine is on a network with Group Policy and Group Policy disables CTL+ALT+DEL for domain users.

After that, if said computer isn't on a domain network with group policy, Was it ever on one or used to log in on a network with group policy including remotely where group policy is applied to remote users.

This doesn't really answer your question but, you can access the Task Manager directly by hitting CTRL+SHIFT+ESC.
