    Control alt del doesnt do anything.  Its prompting me to hit cont alt del, but when i do, nothing happens.  The box tells me "requiring this key combination at start up helps keep your computer secure". "Insert card or press delete"   HELP!!!!!!!!!!

      You can ignore the above post.

      What exactly happens in safemode ? ?
      The loss of Task Manager can sometimes be caused by Malware...what protection apps do you have ? ?

      And what happened to the PC prior to this ?

        My anti virus software is Norton.  This is a laptop I don't use very often, but yet in still, I'd like to solve this problem.  When I run in safe mode, it still brings up the log in prompt as usual, just this time in safe mode.  No mouse movement, no keyboard action, I'm at a loss.  Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.   THANKS
