My windows task manager closes right when I open it. I'd post a HighJackThis log but I just want to know first if that will help any. Also, I tried posting my log earlier, but it says I have URL's that aren't allowed to be posted. What's up with that? Anyways, the task manager is the most important thing in this post, so if you could give me some help/ideas, it would be greatly appreciated. I did do a McAfee virus scan and a spyware scan, that got rid of some stuff, but my task manager is still "malfunctioning". Also (perhaps unrelated) when I'm signed on AIM, sometimes an away msg will come up on there that isn't mine, and it has a link to a site, and I don't know how to fix that either. Anyways, any help at all would be appreciated.
