  1. I hope I'm doing this right...o.o

    Just so you all know, I probably got this worm from Limewire...it kept on restarting by itself and then after I uninstalled it, I couldn't open my task manager. I don't know if there's anything else wrong with it yet, if something comes up, I'll let you know...

    Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance. :)

    That`s good news.

    Thanks for your feedback.

    Go and have a good read of this thread and it`s links.

    Before posting your HJT log, please read this. Download and run the antispyware tools mentioned.

    They will help to keep your system clean.

    Regards Howard :)
