NT and 2000 users are accustomed to locking their desktop with ALT+CTRL+DEL, but under XP this brings up the performance monitor.

You can create a shortcut on the desktop to lock your desktop with the following command:
rundll32.exe user32.dll,LockWorkStation

If you`re looking for a key combo to accomplish this same task, WINKEY+L will lock your desktop.
