  1. i got this virus, it is 23KB in size, it deactivated my taskmgr.exe and regedit.exe. Everytime i press run and type in taskmgr or regedit it says "Windows could not find "regedit" Make sure you type in the name correctly, and then try again. To search for a file, click the start button, then click Search." The virus also opens up internet explorer and spam ads every 30 seconds or so. The origional virus was installed at C:\WINDOWS\system32\jwtch32.exe. I deleted the virus, but taskmgr and regedit is still unusable. I uploaded the file to virustotal.com and check, but all of the antivirus says clear. Anyone can help?
