i jus booted up my PC after being out on almost 80 days of vacations and now after 1-2 days of usage i feel that my PC's acting strangely. its performance is worser than it used to be, and tonight windows is telling me that task manager is disabled by my administrator. My Computer takes a few moments to properly start and display and there are slight freezes now and then. i havent tried defragging, cooling or anything to fix it up as i am short on time for other projects, so please let me knw what i can do to find out the root of all these problems.

thanks in advance

"Taskmanager disabled by Administrator" is a very common symptom of malware.

I suggest that you follow the procedures outlined here: http://www.geekstogo...-Log-t2852.html

When complete, post a HiJackThis log here: http://www.geekstogo...o-Here-f37.html

You will be assisted by a trained malware specialist. If any problems remain after your helper has given you a clean bill of health, post back here and we will assist in getting everything sorted.

Good luck, and happy hunting.

Hi i have just got rid of a big big virus called ucleaner [ ultimate cleaner 2007 ] and at first it blocked me from task manager until i did the following:
Start > Run > Enter the code below > Click ok

REG add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System /v DisableTaskMgr /t REG_DWORD /d 0 /f
The [ CMD ] should popup up for like half a second and thats it then simply Ctrl + Alt + Delete

Hope this works and if you do have the same virus as i did ucleaner and trojan horse and smitfraud and the rest visit the link http://forums.techgu...leaner-bug.html and it helps alot or just google ' ucleaner help with virus '

Once again i hope this works for you guys

badben-- please do not attempt any shortcuts. Let the trained people in the malware section review your log. Every system is unique. What works for one may not work for you.
