nit picking. it doesn't "force(s) obstinate computers to restart when
they will no longer follow other commands." It switches focus to the
Windows Task Manager.

Not really. But they *do* leave their droppings everywhere.

I think Sprung is a spring chicken, no?

Dear Sprung,
Your assignment, should you choose to accept it, is to infiltrate your local computer
scrap yard and foist a "386" computer. Resuscitate it using 4 megabytes of ram, a
5-1/4" floppy and a 100Mb drive. (You may actually have to do some research here.)
When you have done this, go to a computer swap meet and obtain a copy of MS dos 6.0
and a copy of Windows 3.0. It may help if you wear a button-up shirt (buttoned to the
top), plaid polyester slacks and unwashed hair. Make sure to yell "dos roolz" a lot.
Install dos.. oops... go to that website again and read up on ctrl-alt-del.
Install dos, then Windows.
About now, you will have discovered a thing called "drivers".
If you make it this far, report back for further instructions.
Good luck.

Ctrl +Alt +Delete just brings up the menu:-
"What do you want to do next?"
Log in as different user
Turn off computer
Restart computer
