If CTRL-ALT-DELETE seems like too much of a hassle, try this instead: .. Right click an empty spot on the desktop, point to New and click Shortcut. 2.. In the Create Shortcut dialog box, type the following into the Type the location of the item text box: rundll32 user32.dll,LockWorkStation 3.. Click Next. 4.. In the Select a Title for the Program dialog box, type Lock the Desktop in the Type a name for this shortcut text box. Click Finish. Now the desktop will lock when you click your new Lock the Desktop icon.

quick trivia:Ctrl+Alt+Del works!Alt+Ctrl+Del works!other than that combination if the "del" button is pushed 1st or 2nd it wont work..the del has to be last...edit: i actually tried to use rundll32 to load the MessageBoxA api from user32.dll ...the msgbox did appear but since the 2nd,3rd parameters were pointers to strings they could not be passed as parameters in the command line...sucks doesn't it!
