    Ctl Alt Delete to unlock PC loops back to Ctl Alt Delete to unlock PC

    I've tried it with both the built in keyboard and an external keyboard.

    I also forgot to mention this is an intermittent issue. CTL ALT DELETE to unlock works most of the time. It seems like when my laptop stays locked a "long" time, like over the weekend, this issue appears.

    Hi Curtis, welcome to Ten forums.

    Have you tried an external keyboard yet?

    Check this thread for the Event Viewer errors.

    Security Center error "DC040780"

    I'm presenting this item as an FYI and not as a solution to your sign-in issue. I chose to defeat this unnecessary step in the login process and defeat the requirement to press Ctrl-Alt-Del before signing-in.

    ctrl alt del to logon

    Hi Diane,

    Conflicts with the user account settings is one of the possible reasons why the secure sign-in option is enabled on your computer even if the box in the settings is not checked. I would suggest that you enable and disable the
    Require users to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete. You can follow the steps below:

    • Press the Windows key + R.
    • Type control userpasswords2 or netplwiz and press the Enter key.
    • Click the Advanced tab.
    • Under Secure sign-in, check the Require users to press Ctrl + Alt + Delete checkbox.
    • Click Apply.
    • Restart your computer.
    • Open the same settings again and uncheck the Require users to press Ctrl + Alt + Delete checkbox and follow the
      steps 5 and 6.

    Should you need further assistance, don't hesitate to get back to us.
