    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Your system is infected with some real nasties.

    Very Important: Before deciding whether you should clean or reformat your system, go and read this thread HERE and decide what it is you want to do.

    If after reading the above, you wish to clean your system, do the following.

    Go and read the Viruses/Spyware/Malware, preliminary removal instructions. Follow all the instructions exactly.

    Post fresh HJT and AVG Antispyware logs as attachments into this thread, only after doing the above.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

    taskmanager in "Windows" folder

    If your problem is that Ctrl-alt-delete is no longer opening tskmngr., you may be able to open it from the "Windows" folder-(double click "My computer", then on "C" drive, then on "Windows" folder--there's a taskmanager icon there.
    This began happened to me at one point-don't know why-and the above worked. Ctrl-alt-delete began working again at some point-again , don't know why.

    good luck
