Hi there, Newbie onboard. I have a problem in which ctrl+alt+del failed to bringup the task manager. However, I can activate the program by right-clicking on the taskbar! I am using WinXP with SP2 installed (I just checked that no other critical microsoft updates are needed). Anyway, I did some complete scans using updated AVG virus scan, Trendmicro HouseCall online scanner, Kaspersky online scanner and Lavasoft Adware SE. All except Kaspersky gave my computer a clean health bill. Kaspersky's result showed 3 infected items. 1. C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files\popcaploader.dll Infected: not-a-virusownloader.Win32.PopCap.b skipped 2. C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Local Settings\Temp\temp.fr8022 Infected: not-a-virusownloader.Win32.PopCap.b skipped 3. D:\owl\visualC++\disk3\SAMPLES\VC98\SDK\SDKTOOLS\SPY\DLL\HOOK.DLL Infected: not-a-virus:Monitor.Win32.KeyLogger.30 skipped I have attached the result below (As a txt). I also performed a Hijackthis and included in the attachments. Any insights/help is greatly appreciated. Thx a million.
