I'm connecting to a Win 2003 server via TS and the delete key is assigned to bring up the task manager. Very annoying, can I turn that off?

How can I tell? There's not much installed on this box. I can see how some people would like this feature, but not me.

Everything looks normal to me. There's nothing in the startups. I've preformed basic OS hardening by disabling unnecessary services. I can give you a list of the running services if you think that will help.

Well, I don't how or why but I turned on stickykeys in the accessability options, (just trying things) and then turned it back off and now the delete key works. Yeah, wow, don't think this will help future visitors to the post, if there are any.

Jay, just reply with a post that says "see message from author above" and I'll mark that as the answer.

In a way you did solve this because your an expert here and you stated you've never seen this before. That tipped me off that is must be something weird and to try weird things. ;)
