    Do you have any idea which "update" you recently applied that resulted in your current issue?

    Have you went back into Windows Update manually to check to see if there may be other Windows Updates still pending?

    As for the Ctrl+Alt+Del part, it used to be normal back in the Windows NT4 and Windows 2000 days, mostly when the computer was part of a companies' Network. I've seen written back aways where it could be re-instituted when needed.

    You might also want to check under the hood a bit
    Windows logo key + X and select "Run" and in the run dialog box type
    control userpasswords2 (same thing as netplwiz)
    hit enter or click OK
    Select the advanced tab and confirm that the bottom check mark is unchecked

    Also a registry setting at
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon
