  1. Right here goes...
    When using my pc a box appears from the bottom right (beside the clock) and tells me that windows security centre has found evidence of spy/malware, and advises me to click on the link.

    this takes me to http://antispywarebox.com/ . also titansheild.com.

    when i go into my task manager its all locked (like faded into the background)so i cant stop anything. also does the same with regedit.exe

    You have got a Spyware problem. Read the stickies and follow the instructions and you should be fine. If you have difficulty following the instructions then ask.

    As has already been suggested. Go HERE and follow the instructions exactly.

    Post a fresh HJT log into this thread, only after doing the above.

    sell by date?
    I didn't know PCs went rotten! ;)

    Of course, some should be considered rotten at the factory- like emachines.....
