  1. This just started earlier today, I hit ctrl+alt+delete and task manager won't come up :(

    I downloaded HijackThis a few minutes ago and did the test and here is the log:

    I don't think explorer.EXE should be in caps
    all my process's in my 3 machines show it lower case
    see where it is running from
    O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [JwxpRibtT] vgaug.exe ??????
    I don't like aim and you have parental controls on the machine.
    you should run hijackthis from it's own folder
    is this your setting
    R0 - HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main,Start Page = <----
    you can try finding the taskman exe on the net(carefully) or in your install disc and reload it

    I downloaded an Anti-malware program and it fixed the problem. Thanks ;)
