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.....
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. http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits/taskmanager.reg
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.
