Unhappy Shortcut Ctrl+F4 doesn't work (Windows XP)

Hello!
My name is Montse and I'm a new member of this forum.

I have next problem: I have a portatil which is working with Windows XP Professional in English, and the shortcut Ctrl+F4 doesn't work.
First I thought that it was a problem of my keyboard, but I changed its hard disk and I put another with Windows 2000, and then that shortcut worked appropiately.
But in Windows XP it does'n work; I checked that the language was the correct one, "Accessibility Options" were the correct.....

I don't know what is happening.
Anybody can help me, please?

Thanks very much!!!

maybe I'm mistaken.. hmmph... ctrl+F4 is for opening the last seen adresses.. prehaps you meant alt+F4 (for closing the window..)??

No, I don't.
"Ctrl+F4" is for closing the active window in an application without close this application whereas "Alt+F4" is for closing current application.
But when I press "Ctrl+F4", no action is done.

Anyway, thanks for your interest!

I would format the harddrive and install Win XP once again...
My second option would be to re-install Win XP over the current installation or to repair the current installation.

There can be a lot of things that's causing it. I don't think it is worth the time to make a diagnosis of it.

Thanks, Chooper. Perhaps you're right. I'll try to reinstall it again.
See you!

Hmm, you probably have reinstalled XP by now, but I had exactly the same problem. However, I found out (actually found this on another website) it was caused by the InterVideo WinDVD tray icon.

Weid & silly relationship, but if you remove "InterVideo WinCinema" from you "StartUp folder" in the start menu, the problem's gone... Do you have the WinDVD update installed?

Cheers - Marco.
