    CTRL ALT DEL it is taking over 20 seconds to come up so I can lock my computer.

    XP PRO SP3 - Dell Laptop D810

    I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and it found and fixed some issues. Nothing else hangs up. Anyone have any ideas what else I can look at?

    any unusual processes running?

    besides running Malwarebytes, run your Anti-spyware and do a full virus scan and see if it finds anything else. also Hijackthis log...

    task manager using c a d has always been slow for me

    I don't understand why ms didn't give it a real time priority but clearly they didn't

    I don't even use it anymore because of Vista and 7, since that huge crazy window pops up, so I just right click the taskbar now, unless in game.

    On my PC with XP SP3 when I push C A D the pop up comes up as fast as I hit the keys.

    Simply press the windows key and L at the same time. Locks screen right away.

    Depending on how group policy is set, this does not always work on XP pro.
