This canít be so. I have installed Windows XP more than 100 times, and after every fresh installation, before any personal configurations or customizations, Ctrl+Alt+Del simply ran the Task Manager, nothing else.

Iím too stubborn. I am a creature of habit, and I have grown permanently accustomed to Ctrl+Alt+Del and its true default function: running the Windows Task Manager.

Yes, that is a good mouse shortcut. I have an AutoHotkey hotkey (or hotclick?) that runs the Task Manager by right and left clicking at the same time while the mouse is over TrayClockWClass1 (the clock on the taskbar). That is not sufficient, however, because when I am in "keyboard mode", it is too inconvenient to switch to "mouse mode" for one simple task. I guess Iíll just have to settle with my custom Ctrl+LWin+Del and Ctrl+Shift+Del hotkeys. Oh, how I will miss you, Ctrl+Alt+Del!
