Nov 5, 2005
  1. Help please, can’t open: task manager, regedit ect.. System functions normally and Norton anti virus 03 doesn’t detect a virus and there is no spy were detected by my spy ware scan (Bullet proof software). After letting my daughter use my comp. I found a file on my desktop under the name amber.exe and when I opened it just disappeared. I then chose to open my task manager to see if it executed some program or command but the task manager closed. I then proceeded to check the registry but it would not open it opens for a split second and then closes again. The task manager opens in safe and diagnostic mode. I tried to close every program via MSCONFIG and I’m not sure which process is responsible. please help!

    Try doing a system restore to before your daughter used the computer.

    All Programs
    System Tools
    System Restore

    You definately have some malware on your computer. I'd suggest reading this thread and following the directions exactly.

    have u updated your antivirus definitions? try a rescan after updating it. also, try using spybot s&d for removing any spywares.
