    When I press Ctrl Alt Del No Menu shows up.. Nothing happens at all. I'm running windows 98 on a pentium 3.

    Have you tried using the other side of the keyboards Ctrl and Alt or even tried another Keyboard? If you have and still a problem after reboot then here is another possibility.

    Go to start\run and type in msconfig then enter. Select System.ini tab and then the plus sign in front of 386Enh. See if there is an entry for "LocalBoot=off" If so change it to LocalBoot=on".
    If LocalBoot is not there at all then create a new line and type LocalBoot=on then click Apply then OK and reboot.
    See if it appears now.
    According to the newsgroups this is a workaround for CAD not working properly.

    Was just posting almost identical advice, except that I'd just delete the LocalReboot entry, it is a legacy of Win3.1 and really doesn't belong.

    Just to add to what Dave has said....If adding LocalReboot=on doesn't do the trick (make sure to reboot first)...some systems respond to LocalReboot=True
