Interesting.  I've just been playing with the "Send cntrl-alt-del" option in
the system menu, and it displays some odd behaviour:  I sent it once
(machine running WinVNC server is a Win95 box), system processes box (don't
remember proper name) displayed on remote machine (as it should), but mouse
locked up and I couldn't see the processes box on my local machine.  I
rebooted the remote machine manually, activated vncviewer, logged in, tried
sending cntrl-alt-del again via the menu, this time it didn't do anything at
all.  Now I can select that option as many times as I want, still doesn't do
anything.  Hmmm......

You can get to task manager several different ways.  CTRL-ALT-DEL is only
one way.  Right clicking on the taskbar and choosing Task Manager will get
you there.  So will CTRL-SHIFT-ESC.  Hope this helps a little.

I have found that the system menu in the upper left corner only works
when I log on to the system.  If I try to use it any other time, it
does not work, such as to bring up the box in order to check processes,
it does not work.  I am trying to communicate with an NT system.
