  1. Lock Computer option has disappeared from computer.


    For some reason both Fast User Switching and the Lock Computer option disappeared from my computer today.

    I managed to re-enable Fast User Switching by altering the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\HideFastUserSwitching from 1 to 0

    But I still can't get the Lock option back in the start menu or in the <Ctrl>+<Alt>+<Del> screen.

    <Windows>+L is also no longer working to lock the computer.


    I have checked local GPO, and lock computer is not disabled by GPO.


    I have tried creating the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System\DisableLockWorkstation and have tried having it set to both 0 and 1, with restarts after each change.

    :)

    Computer lock ups...

    weird, i did what you said, and instead of locking up w/ the screen frozen and the sound clicking, it now would go black, or go black and reboot automatically. i found out a place that always makes my computer freeze, and that is refreshing the server list in battlefield 2
