When I press Ctrl+Alt+Del when the system is on, the Task Manager opens. How
can I fix it so that I get the default screen with the lock computer option?

More about : ctrl alt del

There at least 4 ways to lock a WinXP (Home or Pro) workstation:

1) Use the Windows Key + L hot key.

2) You can press CTRL+ALT+DEL and then <ENTER>, once you've turned
off the Welcome Screen and Fast User Switching. (This is the default
in a domain environment, as FUS is contrary to the domain security
paradigm.)

3) You can create a desktop shortcut with
"%windir%\System32\rundll32.exe user32.dll, LockWorkStation" in the
target field. (It is case-sensitive, BTW.) You can then assign a
keyboard shortcut.

4) Set a password protected screensaver, and wait the allotted time
without touching the mouse or keyboard.

When Welcome Screen is enabled, CTRL + ALT + DEL opens Task Manager
When Welcome Screen is disabled, CTRL + ALT + DEL opens the Security dialog
as shown in Windows 2000

To turn off the Welcome screen (Fast User Switching is disabled when you
disable the Welcome Screen):

1. Open User Accounts in Control Panel.
2. Click Change the way users log on or off.
3. Clear the Use the Welcome screen check box.
