  1. i have attached the hijackthis log.
    my task manager wont open when i press ctrl + alt + delete and this started to happen at the same time when limewire began opening itself every 30 seconds. after uninstalling limewire this stopped it opening but the task manager still wont open.
    when i tried typing in taskmgr.exe into "run" it said "another program is currently using this file".
    other than the task manager not working my computer seems to be working ok and is not lagging at all really.
    any help would be appreciated as it is probably obvious i would never know how to fix this myself.
    thanks...

    First Read: Only use these HJT-instructions when asked!
    /P/ Process needs to be stopped
    /S/ Service needs to be stopped
    /U/ UNinstall anything to do with this
    /R/ unRegister the xxx.DLL in that line
    The text between the dotted lines underneath goes between the dotted lines of that post.
    Make sure to follow ALL instructions, and in HJT tick/fix ALL lines!

    same problem

    I am having the same problem. I just ranhousecall, spybot, and adaware. They all found stuff. task manager still does not open properly. when i go through command prompt, it says that the file is being used, so I know something is running, preventing me from using it. here is my hjt, thanks.
