  1. Hi guys,
    I have been trying to open task manager but doing the CTRL+ALT+DEL does not work. Nothing happens.
    I tried right clicking the bottom bar in XP and then select Task Manager but nothing. I even went to c:/windows/taskman.exe nothing happens.

    Also everytime I start windows, it tries to connect to the internet and opens Limewire. So what I did was to rename the limewire.exe file...

    Any ideas anyone? I used trend micro to delete and scan files... but now I am stuck. is it a registry thing?
    Please help gurus!
