Hi, hope this is the right forum for this question.

When trying to log on to one of our PC's this morning,
the 'control,alt,delete' window was upside down also the
login screen. After logging in (upside down) the desktop
is upside down too and the mouse is working backwards. Not
sure what the night shift did, but does anyone know a
quick way of fixing this?

Thanks so much

If you have a jokester on the night shift, I would think
that someone opened the monitor and turned the yoke around.

The yoke is the big coil that sits over the neck of the
CRT.

You do not say what type of monitors you are using.

If you go into the display settings, then the advanced settings, some drivers allow you to turn the screen. Mine is an ATI Driver, and there is a tab that says Rotation.

I would doubt that they went that far - bit destructive. There used to
be a little Win95/98 utility that would do this (for joke purposes, it
wasn't destructive). Perhaps it's been updated for Win2K.

You might want to run a search to see what files were added/changed in
the last 24 hours which may give a clue.

Also, check the startup folder (all users) to see if anything has been
put there.

Also, think of a way to pay back the night-shift :)-)
