Can not shutdown - among other problems
I have a dell notebook and recently I noticed that I could no longer use ctrl+alt+delete to launch the taskmanager. Actually, it launches nothing. It's as if I didn't push the buttons at all.
The buttons work by themselves.
I tried to shutdown from the start menu, but nothing happens after I click the "shutdown" button. Nothing happens when I click the "logoff" button and the same goes for "restart." I can push the power button and it will turn off the computer, but when I push it again, it boots straight to the desktop I had open when I pushed the button. It doesn't ask me to login or anything. It's as if that button now makes the computer sleep instead of shutdown.
All other programs are working fine. I don't have any virus software, but I do have spybot and I ran it - it found nothing.

Same happened to me, i was trying to shut my dell inspiron laptop down it won't work. Same goes for all the buttons restarts etc.. and also ctrl+alt+del doesn't work( tried it after reading this post) same goes for mrt( windows malware removal) it doesn't open. It is the first time this happens. I think it is a new type of virus or something i did open a unusual jpeg image on gmail. Most probably its from that. Downloading malwarebytes now see if that fixes anything. I will update you if i find a way to fix it.
Downloaded malwarebytes! But the setup file is not running. Please if anyone knows how to resolve this reply ASAP.
