I am having similar issues to those that have been posted about the ctrl alt delete not being able to open my task manager. even when i use Run with the taskmgr command it still will not open. This problem occurred just moments after my dumb *** opened a file off of limewire that i should have not been messing with. The error box that appears after using the run command is that "another application is currently using this" so it must be a virus or spyware causing the problem. When i run adaware it allows me to delete all but like two or three files. which i'm guessing are the ones that are causing the problems. When I enter my MsConfig to disable startup programs there are none in there that could be considered malicious. I also tried using the Hijackthis program and found nothing in the error report that looked similar to anything posted so far. Also, I get random pop-ups and stupid programs that will just pop up. In my Firefox as well, advertisement pages will open non-stop. I'm not sure if this is related, but my limewire keeps wanting to open itself up even after i close it immediately. Hopefully someone else is having the same problem or knows a solution to this. I would appreciate it!!!
