  1. hi peoples, i was wondering if you all could help me.
    i got this annoying windows popup thing while trying to install a diffrent type of msn, and got a little bit of a annoying thing.
    when i go on the normal msn a little window pops up every now and then
    say 's' and you can only press okay. i think you can fix it from task manager but that dosent load when i press alt+cnrl+delete. if i go run task manager from start it says this ' another program is currently using this file ' !! how can i get rid of the 's' window pop up thing and HOW do i get task manager back...

    hope you can help

    some viruses will prevent the task manager from opening so please go here and follow all the instructions. you can also include ewido from www.ewido.net/en/download , its free.then post an hjt log which is free from here and post it here.

    hjt= hi-jack this. it a software developed by a man called tom coyote or so i believe. it scans your pc and will produce a readable log that can display faults in files plus viral and adware infections. be sure that when you do post it that it is uploaded in text form.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    As tomrca says, you may have a virus/spyware infection.

    Follow the instructions exactly in this thread HERE.

    Then post a fresh HJT log as a .txt attachment into this thread.

    If your problem turns out to be virus spyware related, I will move this thread to the appropriate forum.

    Regards Howard :wave: :wave:
