HI, recently whenever I have tried to close a program by clicking ctr+alt+del and clicking end task, my pc crashes! I have no idea why it's started doing this suddenly. It's usually my msn messenger which stops responding. I also noticed, for the first time, that while closing msn messenger, in the list of programs it said unknown>. What could this be? This is the first time I have seen this.

If you use Ctrl+Alt+Delete more than three times in one go, your PC will reboot it'self.

Do you always use this method to close your programs down?

no only when programs stop responding, as I can't get into the program options to close it down. I do know that clicking the ctrl+alt+del will reboot my pc if i click it too much, this is not the problem, the problem is that now its crashing my pc when it never used to, therefore i have to reboot my pc by pressing the reset button on my hard-drive tower, i press ctrl+alt+del, click on the program thats stopped responding then click end task and then my pc crashes.
