I'm using Boot Camp to run Windows on my Mac.

Last night I tried to compress the memory of C, then after that finished, it told me to

Press Ctrl + Alt + Del to restart

How do I press these keys?

One of these should work. Option is Alt in Windows. Your Backspace key generates Delete (You might need to press the Fn key to generate Delete)

Control + Option + Delete


Control + Option + Fn + Delete

You should also try:

Ctrl Shift Esc

It's similar in that it also opens Task Manager like C-A-D sometimes does. But it won't work in the other situations, where C-A-D specifically is needed. –  grawity May 4 at 16:56
