Hi all,

I am a novice when it comes to Win XP. I use Win 2k at home and at work, so I apologize if this is a stupid question.

In XP Pro, when you hit Ctrl + Alt + Del, you get the dialog box with Lock Computer, Shut Down, Task Manager, etc... whereas if you hit Ctrl + Alt + Del in XP Home, you go straight to the Task Manager.

Is this behavior in XP Home attached to a setting somewhere? I am wondering if XP Home even has the Lock Computer, Shut Down, Task Manager, etc. dialog box. Does it? I have a co-worker who is convinced that the Lock Computer dialog box exists in XP Home, but I have never seen it. He brings his laptop into the office to listen to music while he works, but he wants to be able to lock his computer when he steps out of his office.

Thanks in advance for the replies.
