    You have got some Windows Updates needed, like XP Service Pack 3 and IE8. But first, try doing a System Restore to an earlier time to try and get the Control Panel access back

    Please don't do a System Restore!

    IF you did it, everything that was done in the programs you ran has been undone.

    What about this entry Bobbye:
    "HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\..\{AFEB6B80-8ACC-4FA9-82C3-27D8449E8F55}: NameServer = 202.63.96.1,202.63.96.13"...

    When I want to identify an IP, I usually start with ARIN: (American Registry for Internet Numbers.)

    IP 202.63.96.1 is identified there as belonging to the APNIC block (Asia-Pacific Network Information Centre )

    Doing the query in APNIC shows this IP to belongs to:

    202.63.96.0 - 202.63.127.255
    netname: SOUTHERNONLINE
    descr: Southern Online Bio Technologies Ltd.,
    descr: A3, Samrat Complex Office Block, Saifabad,
    descr: HYDERABAD, PinCode -500004.
    remarks: http://www.sol.net.in
    remarks: A Class B Internet Service Provider
    remarks: Operating in AP Telecom Circle, India.
    country: IN

    I checked http://www.sol.net.in/ and it appears to be a valid company.

    Since this is a global board and this is a new member with no information available, I'd probably ask the user to verify this is the ISP or work server. If it is not, I'd look further.

    Does that help?

    I researched that too. I thought that it might be an IP redirector though

    prianca, addressing just the Task Manager problem: did you try doing a right click on the Taskbar> Task Manager? Does it appear when you do that?

    It works in Windows 7 Bobbye... I never tried it that way. Does it work in XP?

    prianca, someone is going to have to take you through the malware cleaning. There are malware infections that render some parts of the OS inaccessible- the Task Manager/regedit/Control Panel being a frequent combination.

    I have found it very convenient to launch the Task Manager using the right click on the Taskbar. I found the the three-finger salute (CTRL-ALT-DEL) awkward to do- a lot of users still do it though out of habit from the earlier versions of Windows I personally didn't expect you'd be able to access the Task Manager using the path I gave you.

    Please seek help on another board where there will be helpers to guide you through the cleaning. I urge you to have little or no internet connection at this time..

    You need to go to emachines support site and download and install the missing drivers for video and wireless network

    NOTE:

    This thread is for the topic My Taskmanager is not popping out when am clicking ctrl+alt+del.

    This is not seen as the same system where member posted a duplicate. That thread will be handled separately and will only be for that topic Laptop Not Shutting Down Properly


    prianca, you should not mix systems one one thread. Post #16 will be handled separately on that thread you started.


    Tmagic, now I see where the duplicate message came from- I had not seen the addition of the friend's laptop to his/her thread.
