    hey guys is there a way i can fix this? i just build this computer and using Windows XP pro. When I press ctrl+alt+del instead of going to Task Manager like i want it to, to goes to "Windows Security" is there a way to go straight to task manager like i could before?

    Seems a bit strange, but verify there is ONLY 1 User Account enabled, it has no password AND it is listed in the registry key:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

    as the DefaultUserName

    Also verify the account information through System Properties > Advanced > User Profiles -- where there should be only 3 accounts: Administrator, Guest, and YOU. Guest must be disabled.

    If no luck there, try this (although mine is actually checked):

    or this:

    I'll assume it worked and mark the thread "Solved", something also available to you in the Thread Tools menu.

    If it did not, reply back and I will "unsolve" it.

    You're welcome for the help.
