This smells unfortunately like the Sality Virus is present here. Important marks are the fact that taskmanager and regedit are disabled + many random processes running from your tempfolder. I'm pretty sure that you're not able to install any Antivirus either.

Sality is a polymorphic file infector which infects legitimate files, so these files should be disinfected instead of deleted. Problem with this infection is, many versions contain bugs in its viral code, and some files it infects will be corrupted, so scanners cannot properly disinfect them either.

That's why, in case of buggy file infectors, a format and windows reinstall is the fastest and especially the safest solution.

So, I suggest you to start backup all of your valuable data/documents/pictures/movies/songs/etc.. Do NOT backup any applications/installers and Do NOT backup any .exe/.scr/.htm/.html/.xml/.zip/.rar files...

This because these files may be infected as well. If you back them up and replace them afterwards, it will infect your computer again.

In case you have used a flashdrive on this infected computer, do not use it again as this one may be infected as well since it spreads via flashdrives (removable media).
