Solved I have aControl Alt-Delete problem

March 18, 2013 at 20:15:34
Specs: Windows XP
Control-Alt- Delete
I’m usng XP Pro
Word will not copy and paste- Says "not responding"
When I try to use control-Alt-Delete I get a whole long list of items. If I select one, it tells me that deleting might cause the system to become unstable. I’ve tried Restore to cure the problem but it doesn’t help. I did a Malwarebyte scan- No problems detected.There are many items that I would not like apparently runniing. I would post the list here but cannot copy all.
I would like to be able to use this function. And get word to copy and paste
Appreciate any advice

I gather you are still in trouble. Not sure whether I can help on this one but let me know what version of Office you are using (eg. 2003, 2007, 2010).

Also let me know where are you copying from and to?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

change from the processes tab to applications. this will allow you to at least close word.

My apologies for posing a question and then not replying.sooner. I have not been well for a couple days.
I did a restore to an even earlier date and it seems to have solved the problem with Word.

I still have the problem with the Control-Alt- Delete. When I try to use it- to close a program that is not responding, It brings up a long list.. If I try to close the function. I get “terminating a processes can result in serious problems” or something like that.
I don’t know when the problem began. The only way I can get the non-responding program to close is to restart the computer

I've not really run into this problem. Can you give me an example of a particular program you have tried to end please?

You will of-course get that error message if you try to stop a system process. Mostly you should be going to the Applications tab (rather than Processes tab), which is a very short list - only what you are running personally.

EDIT:
Seems I overlapped with the above post - typing too slowly LOL.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

The question I have is, how often is the stop process occurring? Is it every time you try to copy and paste? Is is a large part of a document? Its possible its a memory allocation issue?

The package will change the Initial size value to 1.5 times of your RAM and change the Maximum size value to 3 times of your RAM if the space is enough.
