  1. Yeah my task manager will not work at all. I press the button after Ctrl alt del and click on the task manager button and poof...nothing ust back to screen. Also my Limewire pro program keeps coming on, and this laptop is running really slow. I did the CoolWeb Search and other nasties but no luck! any ideas? I did run adaware adn it came up with win 32.p2p worm alcan.

    Fix these worms:

    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdates] C:\Program Files\winupdates\winupdates.exe /auto
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [winupdate] C:\Program Files\winupdate\winupdate.exe /auto
    O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [p2pnetworking] p2pnetworking.exe
    O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [p2pnetworking] p2pnetworking.exe

    These are most likely unneeded as well:

    O17 - HKLM\System\CCS\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain =
    O17 - HKLM\Software\..\Telephony: DomainName =
    O17 - HKLM\System\CS1\Services\Tcpip\Parameters: Domain =

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    Boot into safe mode. See how HERE.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    In Windows Explorer, turn on "Show all files and folders, including hidden and system". See how HERE.

    Run HJT with no other programmes open, have HJT fix the following, by placing a tick in the little box next to(if there).

    O4 - Global Startup: svchost.exe

    O16 - DPF: {9A9307A0-7DA4-4DAF-B042-5009F29E09E1} (ActiveScan Installer Class) -

    Click on the fix checked button.

    Close HJT.

    Locate and delete the following bold file(if there).

    C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Start Menu\Programs\Startup\svchost.exe

    Reboot into normal mode, and turn system restore back on.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
