Hi. I read in windows HELP that you can press control alt delete with windows xp pro and there should be a LOCK COMPUTER button..i dont see one...why not? Also, i read that in user accounts i should be able to make it so users have to press control alt delete to log on rather than the welcome screen. I do have xp pro, so why cant i see these two things?

Hi.. I'm trying to enable CTRL-ALT-DEL for logging on to the system. The instructions say to go to Control Panel, then User Accounts, then click on the "Advanced" tab. I do not see any "Advanced" tab anywhere. Am I doing something wrong? Please help, and thanks in advance!

Thanks for the quick reply, John. I've gotten as a far as that, but i do not know how to enable the control+alt+delete lock. :( I was searching around google, and I saw picture instructions for the process. The User Accounts control panel depicted looks like the "Classic Windows" control panel. It shows the Advanced tab and everything. I seem to have the "New Windows" control panel. Is there a way I can switch it over? Thanks again in advance!
