This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

This is not a programming question, and is off-topic here. However, the answer is no. Ctrl+ALt+Del is not changeable, and not easily even interceptable (you have to write a GINA DLL to do so, hooking into the login process). This is by design. –  Ken White Dec 2 '11 at 21:09
Thanks but is it possible to set password for starting task manager? –  user816153 Dec 2 '11 at 21:19
The keyboard shortcut for task manager is actually Ctrl+Shift+Esc. This works whether or not you enable the Welcome screen. –  Neil Dec 2 '11 at 21:33
