Hi, i'm having a problem with my computer, when i press control+alt+del,
nothing happens, i don't know what's going on but the system doesn't do
anything. Also, when i enter in safe mode it does work so i'm guessing is
some sort of problem in my normal mode configuration or maybe some virus,
anybody knows anything about it or may have a solution for the problem??.

By the way i'm running windows xp home edition with the service pack 2.

I've had bad keybopards do that,; beyond that, one of the experts will have
a better solution!

The best way to find out if your computer has a virus is by doing a scan
with your installed antivirus in Safe Mode. Your installed av should be
a current version, not earlier than 2004, and your virus definitions
subscription should be active and the definitions up-to-date. Here are
some general malware removal steps, including what to do if you do not
have a full-featured antivirus installed:
