Solved: Control Alt Delete Doesn't Work

Q: Solved: Control Alt Delete Doesn't Work

Not sure if ths belongs here or in the security thread??

I could swear I've seen similar problems on this forum, but I did a search and didn't come up with anything.

3Ghz Pentium 4 512 MB of RAM running XP Pro. Last night a user on this PC installed MS updates, by logging off via the "install updates and shut down" option. When she came in this morning, the PC didn't respond to control + alt + delete. She asked me for help in logging on. I clicked on the help link in the control alt delet prompt, and the password prompt came up!?

The MS update button(at the bottom right corner of the screen - not sure what this is called) on her login still had the exclamation point on it, so I clicked on it to install the updates again. It installed and prompted for a restart. So I clicked on the restart now option. Nothing happened. I went to Start->shutdown, and nothing happened. I hit control alt delete, and nothing happened.

Ran spyware checks via spybot and ad-aware and they only turned up cookies. I am in the process of running a virus check right now.

My userid on the same computer has no problems. When I hit control alt delete, I get the standard prompt.

A:Control/C Control/V control/alter/delete doesn't work

Mary, keyboard problems are not invariably software or malware-related. First things first - what OS are you talking about ? XP, Win 7, Win 8 or what? What type of keyboard is it? PS2, USB or wireless?

Disconnect it and reconnect it a few times, reboot and try again. Turn the keyboard upside down, placing one end on the edge of a thick book, and thump a few times on the back with your hand. Sweep the crud onto the carpet.....

Is it just a keyboard hardware problem, and if so which keys? tells you a lot of key combinations with ctrl and shift and alt. Tell us if any or none work?

Open a document and try typing a bit of text. Do all the characters work?

If it appears the keyboard is faulty, can you borrow another to test?

Quite often, keyboard problems are down to wireless problems: and can often be solved by re-installing the keyboard driver.

I am hoping someone on this forum can help me. I have a Thinkpad X60s, about a year old and I am running XP. Randomly my computer becomes sluggish so I try closing programs. I then figure out that one program is frozen (come to think of it, that program may always be IE) and I can't close it. I then try to warm boot with ALT CONTROL DELETE but it doesn't work. In fact, instead of getting the task manager, my screen saver comes up without any icons on my desktop. I have no cursor and can't do anything but unplug or take out battery and manually crash the computer. It then will start normally though it takes longer for the icons to appear.

I regularly download both IBM and Windows updates, I defrag regularly, do virus scans etc using Norton 360. I also have run Think Pad Productivity Center maintenance tasks.

Other than that and the slugglishness the computer runs ok.

Any help out there? I am frustrated and IBM has not been able to help, except by telling me to change the hard drive or send it to them.

A:Freeze,alt control delete doesn't work, lose all icons

Yes I think this is a hard drive issue too. Check to see how much space you have left on it. Go to My computer and right-click on the C drive icon. Click Properties... Also, you might consider checking the hard drive with a utility like Seatools from Seagate. IBM notebook drives are noted for their high failure rates...

Back up your important data please, ASAP

Good luck

I'm running Windows XP SP2 and I have all my sound drivers installed (I can get sound just fine in every app), but I can't control the main volume in the Volume Control. I can adjust the volume with the Wave slider, but the main one doesn't do anything, including mute. Individual applications' volume controls work fine too, just not the main Windows one. It wouldn't be a problem, but it might be the reason why I'm not getting any volume on the Stereo Mix recording option. I just finished a clean install of XP (for a different reason) and it wasn't working before, either. Any ideas?

I'm running Microsoft professional, Internet Explorer and have a Google toolbar.

All attempts to add software are blocked and the add remove feature in the control panel won't open. For example, I can't update my old version of Itunes because the popup for the update gets blocked. I know about the popup blocker in the Google toolbar, and how to handle that, that isn't the problem. In Internet Options, the security setting is at medium and under the advanced tab I reset all options to default.

A:Tecra P5 - Volume control doesn’t work properly

As far as I know volume control in the past was mechanical but now it works on different way and it is controlled by specific tool/utility.
To be honest Tecra P5 is not known to me but obviously it is Australian notebook model and according to Australian support page this notebook model is not supported for Windows 7.

That doesn?t mean you cannot use it but this means there is not software package designed for Windows 7 that can be installed so I think there is no much you can do about it.

I know it is annoying but for volume control you can use Windows option placed in task bar.

I recently noticed that my ctrl+a doesn't work. All the other ctrl combinations do! Ctrl+a doesnt allow me to "select all" while word processing or use this combination in games (first person shooters).

I have a logitech G15 and other keyboards and they all dont allow me to use ctrl+a. I have tried different versions of keyboard drivers for my G15 and without. I plugged the keyboard into another W7 and it works

Im assuming this is an issue with my OS now.

I know reinstalling windows is a option but want that to be the last resort as i only reformatted last month(i think it only started occurring when i reformatted)

EDIT: I have fixed my issue - it turns out my user account was corrupted, so I had to make a new one and copy all my documents folder over!

Yesterday I reinstalled Windows 7 on my notebook PC. I had to use a Microsoft installation disk because unfortunately, serious errors resulted after I installed from the HP recovery program. Consequently the HP drivers that were installed automatically with the recovery program weren't installed on my system. I had to install several of them from the HP support site. I got everything to work except for the Touch volume control, or the Volume Scroll Zone as referred to by HP in the service guide. This is the device located just above the keyboard that increases or decreases speaker volume when you drag you finger on it. I installed the Quick Launch button driver but that only applied to the mouse and pointer touchpad. I looked at the devices listed in my startup configuration. I saw the synaptics pointing device and the HP quick launch buttons listed. So is the IDT PC audio driver.  What am I missing? Where I can I find it to activate the touch volume control?

Through out the day, I have my computer on. Many times... whether I am using the computer at that moment, or if I leave and come back later... my screen will be frozen. The mouse moves, but nothing on the screen can be clicked. Also, control alt delete works as well, so I have found that if I go into the applications tab and open a new task and open/refresh "explorer" everything will start working again. So there is a work around, but it gets a little frustrating. Any ideas about why this would be happening?

welcome to the forums
Maybe its just hanging up because you leave it sitting so long. Have you thought about letting it go standby when it sits for say ten minutes? Then when you come back and touch the mouse, it picks up right where you left off. To do that, right click anywhere clear on your desktop and select properties, select screensaver,then select power settings, then you can set it to turn off monitor after five or ten minutes, my hard drives are set for never turn off and system you can set for whatever you want, I am set for standby after 15 minutes...doc

Just recently, I noticed control alt delete doesn't work anymore. Nothing happens when I press it. My computer has been running extremely slow. Usually I would click control alt delete and end the processes of everything I don't recognize. That seems to work, except I can't do it now. There are always a ton of processes in there that shouldn't be. If someone could help me get back that window, I could really use some help getting rid of all those unnecessary processes. Thanks.

I have a account on Netscape mail (eg [email protected]). I have never had any problem with this account before but for the last few days the delete function doesn't work. That is, when I try to delete an e-mail after reading it, it doesn't delete.

I think this must be a problem on the server rather than on my PC right? Is anyone else having this problem?

I tried reporting it to Netscape but there doesn't seem to be any address for reporting this stuff on the site. When I finally found a tech support address that I thought might work, I just got a formletter back saying they don't provide assistance to accounts.


A:Delete doesn't work in Netscape Mail

It appears now that this is a Firefox issue.

Recently, I have been able to access Netscape Mail and use the delete function through Internet Explorer.

Only thing I can figure is that something in the recent Firefox update affected this capability. However, it works in FF for other mail accounts, so it's a puzzle to me.

Hi all,

Just started experiencing this problem a few days ago. No idea what caused it.

The delete key on my keyboard(s) no longer works. I've tried 3 different keyboards (which I know to function), and pressing the delete key (either one, on the numpad or above the arrow keys) doesn't have any effect.

Even on the on-screen keyboard, it doesn't work!

Strange thing is though, CTRL+ALT+DEL works. SO for some reason, the delete command just isn't registering when I press the delete key.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the keyboard and software, no results. I'm using a MS Comfort Curve keyboard, but also tested on a Logitech Wave and an old PS/2 keyboard.

I've searched all over and haven't found anyone with a similar issue.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks much,

EDIT: Even more strange observation: When I hit a key in conjunction with DEL, it works. Like Shift+DEL functions properly!

A:Delete key on ALL keyboards doesn't work, but CTRL+ALT+DEL does.

And a restart fixed the problem... jeez I'm an idiot

Hello, I have a problem with connecting my SE K700i cell phone with Windows 7 notebook via bluetooth. I have paired them, file transfer is available, the problem is remote control (HID profile) - when trying to connect either desktop, presenter, kmplayer or any other, it always shows "Bluetooth connection failed. Retry?" I do not know what to do with that, with Vista it worked properly, the driver is the same, so what is the problem? Would be happy, if you could help me.

edit: the problem is in Windows - remote control does not work neither with another cell phone. It has Bluetooth Stack for Windows by Toshiba.

Hi, I had some issues with a HDD around this time last year, so I replaced it with a new western digital HDD. I wasn't able to back anything up, so I cloned it instead.

turns out I installed the incorrect driver for my video card and suffered from the BSOD syndrome....

well, I finally got that sorted out, ( I think ) and now I am trying relentlessly to get catalyst pro control center to work properly. Ive read numerous places online that involves editing the Assembly folder, but I have no such keys in there.

when I try and run CCC, it tells me that I am unable to run as I wouldn't be able to change any settings within the app basically. Ive tried uninstalling, installing. trying ATI opposed to AMD- to no anvil.

I know for a fact that I had CCC on this pc, but it almost seems impossible to get up and running, I am very desperate to get this up and running.

If I try to use the Ctrl-Click action on web pages that allow you to select multiple items in a list box, a new ie session opens (to my home page) instead of allowing me to make multiple selections. This happens with ALL web pages that have multiple select boxes. It only happens on my desktop (XP with i.e 7), and not on other computers in my house with ie7.
- I tried disabling ALL active X controls and add-ins. Still didn't work.
Any ideas please? (It's maddening!!)

A:Control-Click doesn't work with multiple select lists-it opens a new ie page instead

One thing you may want to check is the control panel/accessibility options and make sure nothing is checked in there. Sometimes the accessibility settings for the keyboard will play havoc with what you think should be happening with keys.

I was running Microsoft Security Essentials when it just froze 1/2 way through a quick scan. The mouse still could move, clicking to stop or close out didn't do anything either. Also Ctrl + Alt + Delete also did nothing. I waited 5 minutes. Nothing. Had to pysically shut down.

Other times I have not been able to click start > shut down. Sometimes I can wait a minute or two and finally things will work again.

Is this indicative of some other process running? Possible a virus? RAM problem? Could a motherboard going bad cause this? Also this customer's BIOS became corrupted for some reason, as the computer would not start before I reseated the battery to get the computer to start again. The battery tested normal at 3.06 V. So I'm still trying to rule out hardware.

A:Solved: Outlook express doesn't delete mail

It's possible that your deleted items dbx file is corrupt.

This is caused by a damaged "Pop3uidl.dbx" file in your Identity's store folder. This file keeps track of which messages on the server have already been downloaded and should therefore be skipped on subsequent downloads. To fix the problem, simply delete the "Pop3uidl.dbx" file. The next time you check for mail, all the messages on the server will be downloaded again, but a new "Pop3uidl.dbx" will be created that should work properly on subsequent mail checks.

To delete the Pop3uidl.dbx Open OE>tools>options>maintenance>store folder. Copy the folder name now click start>run>paste in the folder name find the file Pop3uidl.dbx and delete it.

If you know there is email you want to keep in there move it to another folder first.

I also know that this problem is because i had a password on that user, and I know that i can solve it somehow with control userpasswords2, but i don't know exactly.

Please help me

A:[SOLVED] Control userpasswords2, how does this work?

That doesn't make sense to me, but maybe i'm missing something??

Did you re-install the whole XP (SP3) OS on a new partition? that probably wasn't neccessary as you could have just installed sp3 and left the rest of the OS as it was.

If they are two seperate installations then the easist thing to do is to login to the installation you want to copy the data from (SP2) and save it to removable media (or onto the other partition if you can) Then login to your other acount (SP3) and copy the data back.

Once you have all the data i'd be tempted to clean up your setup, wipe both installations and install one OS on one partition.

Right now I'm using the laptop and it works fine.

I'm running windows 7 and have an Intel WiFi Link 5100, Mdl 512AN_MMW. I have an ASUS N Router.

Is this Intel 5100 my network adapter? Do you think it could be going bad?

Thanks, Brian

I suppose this is a general computer issue but beings my operating system is XP I thought I would put it here.

Anyway, my mouse doesn't work. It doesn't appear on the screen as if it wasn't plugged in at all. However the activation light on the mouse itself is on (and I have since tried two different mouses and they have all had the same issue)

I've heard it may be my USB port, however when I tried plugging it into the 'other mouse port' (sorry my tech names are bad .. the circle plug with the prongs inside of it) I am presented with the same problem.

If I got to the mouse Properties it tests me that "This Device is working properly" but still no mouse has appeared on my desktop? Previously it told me that there was a corruption in the device (code 33 I believe)? but that problem has remedied itself some how.

If someone could help me, or point me in the right direction I would be thankful. I am an avid user of Photoshop and MS Paint, and its aggrivating that I cannot use these products because the mouse doesn't work. (also navigating webpages with the "TAB" he is quite a pain in the backside .. filling out the registration from this site took me nearly and hour.

Can anyone help?

A:[SOLVED] Mouse Doesn't work

Hi H, Lets see if we can make that ol mouse working again. Answer a couple questions for me if you will. Do you have access to another computer in the house? Im thinking that it would be good if you could plug the mouse into another computer to make sure its not just a defective mouse. Do you happen to have the disk that came with any of the mice youve tried? If not can you tell me the make and model of the mouse so I can find you the drivers for it? Have you tried plugging the USB mouse into another USB port and rebooting? Perhaps its the USB port itself causing the problem. When was the last time the mouse worked correctly? Have you installed any new programs since then?
Try to answer these questions, and Ill check back in awhile to see your response.

I'm using an Apple Mac Mini right now, and I used the Bootcamp software to partition the hard drive into two; one a Mac, the other Windows.

The problem is that the Internet doesn't work when I want to use the Windows side. It works fine on the Mac side (which is how I'm writing this), so I'm not sure what's going on.

Can anyone help me out?

Thanks in advance.

I use Verizon “My Yahoo” as my home page. I have it customized the way I like, but a few weeks ago parts of it stopped working. The links, which open a new page, work fine. However, the tabs, which take me to a new part of the same page, get a spinning wheel and never seem to load. The odd thing is that the very same page works fine on my husband’s computer.

I have deleted cookies, browsing history, etc. and reset IE to default settings. I also disabled all add-ons and used Microsoft’s Fixit tool. Nothing helped.

Does anyone else have these problems or a solution? Thanks.

Hi -

i have a new Vista system (from Dell), but the screensaver doesn't work. I don't really "need" it, but i use it occassionally.

Also, the power management features don't work in regard to the monitor either. This i do like to use .... but the monitor just won't turn off unless i use the button on the front.

The monitor is a bit older (maybe 2 years old), a FP193 or something like that. Dell doesn't have a updated driver for it, so i guess i can understand the power features not necessarily working, but shouldn't the screensaver still work regardless?

The monitor driver is the generic driver that comes with Vista.

Any suggestions?

I recently discovered that my cd/dvd player stopped working...when I click on my computer icon the D drive isn't visible.

When I go into the device manger the dvd/cd player shows up but has a small yellow icon with a exclamation mark in the middle.

When I click on it I get this message
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
I tried reinstalling the driver but my computer doesn't recognize the d drive to read the disc that contains the cd/dvd driver program..

Dell wanted to charge me about 60 bucks with no guarantee they could help me.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

I send mail to numerous people simultaneously, many times with one or more embedded links. One of the recipients complains that the link does not work, i.e., it does not re-direct to the linked site. No one else has any problems with the link, and the person who complains has no problems with other links.
Is there someplace I can look, or something I can do to find and fix the problem??

I have two computers running Win XP Pro -- IE 6 -- both using LG flatscreen browsers. I have a website -- many pages -- some with little "keys" that lead to supplemental pages.
NOW -- with computer #1 -- I click on my little "keys" (links) and go smoothly to the supplemental pages -- and use the next "keys" to move on to additional supplemental pages. Then when I "click" on the keys to return to previous pages EVERY THING WORKS PERFECTLY.

NEXT -- with computer #2 -- I do exactly the same as shown above and all the little keys take me to the supplemental pages. HOWEVER WHEN I TRY TO RETURN TO A PREVIOUS PAGE -- I get the following error message:

Internet explorer cannot open the Internet site OPERATION ABORTED. (followed with a little box with an OK box waiting to be "clicked").

What is driving me "up the wall" is that -- the browser actually has returned me to THAT page -- and when I click on the OK I am moved to a new error message page that says: This page cannot be displayed.

BUT -- I click the browser's refresh button and THAT error message disappears and the legitimate web page appears with NO "error message".

Hello, I was just adding a new DVD drive to my desktop computer and just took it out to my patio, put it in, and then closed it back up. I blew inside the tower a little to get some of the dust out. After, I tried starting my computer and then the monitor didn't work. It could not detect the computer and nothing happened. The computer was up and running (from what I saw) but the monitor wasn't working.

At first, I thought it was the monitor, so I tried a different monitor on the computer, but that didn't detect the computer also.

So then I thought it was the graphics card, but I realized my graphics card is an integrated graphics card.

So, I just put in another graphics card, plugged the monitor into that output, but it still didn't work.

I don't know what's going on, could somebody please help?

XP PRo on all networked PCs

Normally, when one right clicks on a drive letter having opened 'My computer', then select 'Sharing' there is a warning about sharing a whole disk and the option to accept anyway.

One laptop doesn't offer that. It just shows the admin share of C$ immediately. If I choose 'New' at the bottom of the panel a new drive letter and drive name can be entered but it can never be accessed over the network! It shows up in the workgroup but I get a network error - 'Network path not found' if I try to access it. I can ping the laptop from anywhere by name and IP address. The laptop can access all the other PCs without any problem.

I am running a desktop PC with Windows XP SP3. I recently decided to upgrade Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 to the 2012 version. Kaspersky recommend removing any previous versions first. I used the Kaspersky Uninstall Tool to remove the 2011 version. After about 15 minutes the tool seemed to stall so I killed the process using the Task Manager. When I rebooted the mouse wouldn't work. I have tried booting in Safe Mode but the mouse won't work there either.

I can boot the PC from an Ultimate boot CD and the mouse works ok. At the moment I am running a Kaspersky Rescue disk and running a complete scan.

Can anyone offer any advice?

I am using my laptop to create this thread.

If this is a desktop unplug it open it up and clean it with a can of compressed air or whatever you have and wait at least five mins before plugging it back in then see what happens.
