    to sign on as adminstrator without going into safe mode

    log off

    at the logon screen press ctrl/alt then del twice

    now you need to type Administrator & the password

    there is a setting for disabling the tskmanager in gpedit.msc
    start / run - gpedit.msc
    user configuration / admin templates / system / ctrl/alt/del/ options

    it could be that ?????

    :cool:

    sorry forgot to mention that gpedit,msc is only available for XP pro
