Lock Computer Not Working

The Lock Computer option has disappeared from my CTRL+ALT+DEL Screen, and the Windows+L keyboard shortcut no longer works to lock my computer! I tried the methods described on these pages...

CTRL+ALT+DEL Screen - Add or Remove Lock Computer

...but nothing seems to work! Please help! I am using Windows 7 Professional, 32-bit with domain login. Any other ideas or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.
