task manager


Recommended Posts

Hello all!

I just went to war with the Total Security 2009 virus and some other spyware. I think i've won it as I have ALL infected in the quarantine however, I noticed upon reboot ctrl+alt+del doesn't work (task manager) I looked in the quarantine and sure enough its the last file wich I renamed "iexplore"

I am now affraid to delete the files in quarantine as they may be important. Is there anyway to repair/fix the files or am I screwed?

ps I have d/l windows process explorer don't know if this is a good replacement?

thanx much,

hey Yardbird,

I posted my logs from malware/hjt and shortly after I now have a "new?" virus called advanced virus remover 2009. Process explorer doesn't even list it and it makes my pc run extremely slow. I also have a problem with avast saying a w32/system 32 file is infected with voodo virus and does nothing to stop it, I just shutdown the computer from power source to stop it.

With these problems and a bunch of .dll errors I have decided to start my computer from scratch (if I can find the xp cd)

Thank you for your time,
