  1. Good Evening,

    I had the task manager issue that many fellas report here (when i press ctrl+alt+del it does not appear). Also regedit is used by the malware.

    Attached you will find the hijackthis log that result after I checked 2 files called msfun80.exe.

    If anyone can help me and let me know if i have to do anything else, i'll appreciate.

    Also I wanna ask you guys, which antivirus I shall installed, 'cause I tried soo many and they seem to not work properly lol.


    Thanks and regards
