Could you be more specific?

Is the keyboard connected properly? Can you push other keys on the keyboard?

Cool "Thou wilst' TREMBLE before thine Task Manager's madjesty..."

If you really got to get to it BADLY, and you are eurning for redemption of your task manager, go to START>Run... and type this:

C:\WINDOWS\system32\taskmgr.exe

If it don't pop up, you must have some spyware....

Hello,

First thing I would do is search for the file taskmgr.exe in the directory c:\windows\system32\ to see if it exists...

If taskmgr.exe exists in that directory, and you can run taskmgr.exe manually, but still not by ctrl+alt+del, then search the directory c:\windows\system32\ to see if the file taskmgr.com exists, and if so, delete it.
