Neither ALT keys work? Or just the one on the right which you are probably used to using.

Both do not work, I figured at first it was my keyboard not working but i have concluded that it was windows itself.

How long ago did this happen? If less than five days, try to restore a previous registry.
Reboot and hold down the CTRL key until you get the boot menu.
Choose Command prompt only.
At the C:\>

Type
scanreg /restore and press enter
Choose a reg from before this happened.

See if that makes a difference.



CTRL +ALT+DEL doesn't work? No ALT at all?


Have you uninstalled or installed any new programs? TWEAKS etc? Anything to give a clue?

It happenend about a month a ago, and Ctrl + Alt + Del does not work at all. I am always installing and unistalling due to my small hard drive.
