Doesn't work how?

It should bring up the task manager

What about Control + Shift + Escape?

If that doesn't work - can you get it on by right clicking the task bar and selecting task manager?

Nope, it only gives 1 loud beep through the system speaker.

Yep, holding them down all together.
Went to that link you provided, Did exactly as it said for the run commands. Remove task manager was set to not configured so i disabled it as suggested and it still didnt work.

I tried going the regedit way but there was no system subfolder in the policies folder.
Sorry for any inconvenience this is causing but i have never had this happen before.

I found the problem.

Ready for this?

Its the damn keyboard. ctrl alt on the left side of the board will not work with delete, but ctrl alt on the right side of the board does.

Switched keyboards and ctrl alt delete on both sides work just fine again.

Oh, i reformatted and the ctrl alt on other keyboard still didnt work with delete but those keys do work on other stuff. Thought maybe those keys in general were bad but they work fine with mapping on games and crap.

Its just the left ctrl alt will not work with delete, go figure. Wonder why that is?

Thanks for all your help, It is greatly appreciated, Thank You
