Ctrl Alt Del doesn't work since program install

  1. I just downloaded a crack version of Windows Blinds which customizes your desktop, I had to change a .dll file to a .dvd file and move it to another folder in order for the program to work, but these were only folders that came with the program and worked fine for others I know. Since installing, Ctrl Alt Del will bring up the task manager for about 1 second and then it disappears.

    I removed the program and scaned my computer with norton and adaware. No luck yet... any ideas Thanks

    haha, sorry dude but you will find little help around here for trying to crack programs and screwing yourself up.

    Uninstall Blinds fully, no doubt this "crack" you got has infected you with something, despite Norton's crummy scan.

    Restart into Safe Mode with Networking. Then try to do a virus scan with housecall.trendmicro.com or www.bitdefender.com
    See what they come up with.

    Otherwise, see this thread about Task Manager problems:

    Techspot does not condone the use of pirated software.

    You won`t get any help around here with this issue.
