First and foremost before you dissmiss this problem as a 'typical' worm/virus/etc etc PLEASE READ what my problem is and all the measures I took to try to get rid of it that didn't work. For almost an entire month, whenever I bring up the Task Manager by hitting the 3 button salute on WinXP Pro, when it shows up, the menu bars and tabs at the top portion of the Task Manager is invisible. Like, it's non existent and I can click straight through it when I try to look for it. I personally find this very alarming because this means there's a peace of malignant something hidden in my OS that's attempting to hide itself from one of those Tabs that shows all the processes that are running in the background. These are the steps I've taken that have not worked at all. All these are the most latest versions. 1) Norton Antivirus 2) Symantec.com 3) Mcafee.com 4) Adaware 5) The Cleaner I am completely confuzzled and frustrated because nobody I know has any ideas on how to fix this small yet very irritating problem. I know for a fact a clean format and reinstall will get rid of it but I have too much important data and not enough time to do this. Also an interesting fact is that The Cleaner found something called "lstbar" but when I looked it up on the Norton website it's discription does not match the problem I have. I also do not have that Norton software which affects the task Manager installed in my computer. So that isn't the problem either. Out of desperation I even ran Windows Update in hope that somehow it would make the damn problem go away. Of course that didn't work. Well, so does anyone have answers or even clues on how I can fix this problem?? Thanky ou for reading and I hope you find this problem a challenge to your l33t tech knowledge. So go ahead, help me tackle this problem.
