Specs: Windows Vista Home, 1.9 GHz / 2812 MB
In Vista, if I hit Control+Alt+Delete, the task manager no longer comes up. Instead, the lock this computer, etc menu comes up. I realize I can start the task manager from this menu. However, I would like to know if there is a quicker way to get into the task manager.

This is a challenge posting by CNChallenger.

btk1w1 scored the bullseye. Since vista is of the NT lineage, M$ finally decided to change the behavior of Ctrl+Alt+Del to its original design - Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to log on. Don't like it? Just complain and whine to M$.
