Hi guys, I need some help pretty soon. ctrl-alt-del does not bring up the taskmgr. Running the taskmgr.exe from run gives me message that another program is currently using the file. Also when i boot the system i get an error saying system is low on memory even tho I have 512 bm ram and no processes/applications running. I went thru previous threads on taskmgr problem and followed all the steps religiously. I am attaching the HJT log file. Even after doing all the things mentioned in previous post, the problem still persists. Kindly help guys, I need some help pretty soon, else I will have to format the machine which I dont want to do. Thanks you all, Cya.
