Task Bar Not Showing

  1. My task bar has stopped showing due to a virus i think. It was working fine before. I can run task manager fine and tried typing explorer and it showed up for 2 seconds then stopped. Could you look at my hijacklog file.

    Your system is infected with malware.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT, AVG Antispyware and Combofix logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Also, let me know the results of the AVG Antirootkit scan.

    Regards Howard :)

    Hi,

    Most often, a vundo infection is the least of the problems. It is most likely that your system is still not fully clean. Therefore, please do continue with the rest of the instructions as Howard had proposed.


    Regards,
    Your friendly momok =)
