    Hey guys,

    I seem to be having an annoying problem.

    Every time i hit ctr Alt delete the program sits there for awhile is there any way i can fix that to dissappear right a way.

    Thx

    What program is freezing that makes you need to hit the CTRL-ALT-DEL?

    You may have too much 'stuff' running at startup.....

    Post a listing of your start up items:

    Start button, run, then type msinfo32 and press ok...go to software, startup, edit, select all, edit, copy and come back and paste....

    How much ram do you have?

    My experience is that most programs take about three shots at Ctrl-Alt-Del before they will actually present themselves so you can End Task....:cool:
