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?




and while i'm on the subject i have another problem, before my old computer I went it boots up it goes straight into XP without login, now i have to Login but not really.. There is no account and no password. It just says administrator and I click enter (without putting in a password)

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):

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.
