  1. when i try to open task manager i get a message saying "Task Manager has been disabled by your Admin"... any clue how to fix this?

    I also have 2 red "X" on my task bar that constantly spam me with "Your computer is infected!" messages demanding i click them and DL some software. The links are dead but the pop-ups just keep comming, how can i get rid of these?

    Thanks in advance for any help you give me.

    Hello and welcome to TechSpot. This sounds like a "anti-spyware" program like SpySheriff. Have a look at the sticky topics in the Web/Security section. :D

    try these:
    get ewido from here
    microsoft anti spyware called "giant" from here
    spybot search & destroy from here
    hijack this from here
    lavasoft's adaware from here
    AVG from here
    try each and see which one catches most of the viruses
    each one is good at something. not all of them catch all the bugs.
