Thanks!!This worked for me. I have a virus on my work computer which prevents the ctrl-alt-del function from working to lock my computer when I leave the office for a bit. My MIS wants to re-image the computer and I don't want to do that, so I have been struggling. BTW, if you have any more good ideas on what is the virus causing htis let me know. Nothing ( Malwarebytes, Spybot, Forticlient, etc) will remove the virus.-reply by Lash

Guys and Girls,Its even easier to lock your Windows XP machine. Just press the "Windows Logo" key on your keyboard and simultaneously press "L" key and your XP Machine is locked. There is a draw back to the "alt+ctrl+del" option even if you disable it displaying Task Manager and it is that you may press the combination but may forget to press "Enter" key or click on "Lock Computer" button and your PC is still un-locked.Try "Win-Logo+L" key combination and that is that, your PC locked.

I sheduled a task on XP once that made it so that on logon, it shutdown with certain parameters, but since it was on a network and with the account it was one, it got logged off and then didn't follow through with the shutdown for some reason. Worked alright though LOL, locked the person out of the computer basically. So, we left it like that for a day and then fixed it via safemode the next day And then the teacher, ironically, said to someone, "You know, we were having problems with that computer yesterday. I guess the admins came in and fixed it." Hahahaha.
Oh man.. thats a cruel joke..

Windows 2000 Pro
Windows 2000 Server
Windows 2000 Advanced Server
Windows XP Professional
Windows 2003 Servers
All use Windows Key + L to lock the computer.
Windows XP Home uses Fast User Switch, Logoff, etc. when using the Windows Key + L.
When I read that Windows +L is just a shortcut key for fast user switch and will not work if u have it disabled from User Accounts. I was a little lost as it works on my XP Professional Machines.
Hope no one was consfused with this, and I wanted to clarify that it does work in Windows XP Professional.

under win 2000, when you press CTRL+ALT+DEL, a dialog pops up with a lock option.
This is very useful when you print then collect some document and the printer is far from you.
But in winxp, after CTRL+ALT+DEL is pressed, the task manager is come up, but a dialog with lock option.
How can I get that dialog back in winxp??
