I think that's what is supposed to happen, then you can shut down any running programs that you wish to. j.

No sorry, CTRL+SHIFT+ESC is an alternative to ALT+CTRL+DEL and should bring up Task Manager.

As to why it should open the start menu I don't know. Hence my previous post with no solution.

I just tried typing "Taskman" into the Run dialogue. Anyone else ever done that?

Yes, I see what you mean now! I had to re-read the question several times, kept seeing it as Ctrl/Alt/del. sort of word blindness. Think it was the "eye candy thread" that did it. :o(

Try this it may work, It's what I did to get a Laptop Keyboard working right. Make sure that the keyboard is set to English British there is or should be a item in the same dialogue for setting to US General without altering the English British Settings. This is as far as I can Remember. In the Control Panel Keyboard Settings
Hope it Helps
