  Thomo1 17:19 21 Nov 2004

Before i start, i dont know too much about computers and this computer i have i brought off a family member, in a hurry cuz i needed 1 urgently!! So i have a few niggly probs. Hopefully any of you kind people can solve.

I cannot execute Ctrl + Alt + Delete.

Every time that i press it i get an error message saying:
Task manager has been disabled by the system adminastrator (ME).
Is there a setting that i can change or anything i can do to change this please?
