Virus disabled my task manager and ate my disk space! Please help!

  1. Hello,

    I was just trying to run my task manager and it keeps giving me this error that it's been disabled by the administrator. Which of course I had nothing to do with. Then I looked at my start menu for the 'run' command and it's gone. I'm pretty sure my computer is infected. I attached my hijackthis log, cos I noticed it contained some suspicious material. And also a virus scan log from 03/30/2010

    I also noticed that about 500mb are missing from my C drive.

    I'm now running a complete virus scan with ESET NOD32 program.

    Quite frankly, I see a lot of malware. I also see several pirated programs, a download manager for cracks and keygens, as well as some questionable entries. You're going to have to remove the pirated programs and also try to convince me that you are a user with a legitimate problem.

    Never mind the task manager is working now. And yes that was a legit problem. And I'm just like millions of people who use pirate problems. It's no big deal.

    We don't support piracy.
