Task Manager Inoperative

    Lately my CTRL-ALT-DEL has not been functioning, also
    RClick and trying to bring up Task Manager does nothing. I
    read other posts concerning a '..has been disabled by your
    administrator...' issues some have but I am not receiving
    that message nor any other messages (error or otherwise).
    The two actions simply produce no response whatsoever.

    I also have Ad-Aware and have run it but it doesn't seem
    to help. Seems some spyware or something keeps popping up
    browser windows when the system is left on but unattended
    for a while. I come back and have a screen full of ads and
    windows and sometimes dozens of download dialogues asking
    for confirmation (Thank goodness I set securities to
    forbid these without confirmation).

    I can't ID or locate the culprit so any assistance would
    be appreciated.

    I'm not concerned specifically with the pop-ups in this
    post. i just want to know why my Task manager's not
    accessible and how it can be fixed.

    Thanks for the link though.
