  1. a setup program runs on startup of windows and task manager refuses to run.

    I have tried allsorts of things to get rid of a setup program that runs on startup but i cant find where the program is in ms config startup option i also cannot open task manager to see what the program is called, it says its used by another program, any help with this would be a godsend i need to atleast use task manager even if i dont fix the setup program which runs(this can be cancelled when it appears).
