control alt delete

when i hit control alt delete it should bring up all of my current running programs but when I do this i only get a window with my name and two options - diconnect or logoff.  how do i see the current running programs which would allow me to shut some of them down in order to make the computer run faster.....
 
thanks,

Re: control alt delete

Scanned for malware recently with Spybot Search & Destroy, Adaware, etc?

If the system is clean, Task Manager may not be enabled. Go to this link and copy/paste the entire text into Notepad. Save the file as task.reg on your desktop.

Log off the net, close all open apps and manually set a System Restore point, just to be safe. Then double-click on task.reg and allow it to modify your registry. Reboot when it's done.

Fixed?
