I am new to xp and I am unble to get ctrl-alt-del to work is there a reason/solution for this?

CTRL+ALT+DEL should launch Task Manager. You can also run it by right clicking the Taskbar and selecting Task Manager.

No I get a message say that another programme is using this file

I had the same trouble some time ago - I found that another program, running in the background, was the cause. Once removed then all was OK.

How do I find the programme and remove it please?
