my computer had been infected with several virus's and spyware and i have been cleaning it up, i have ran super antispy, avast, spysweeper, trojanhunter and trend micros housecall online scanner. however i am not able to get task manager to come up, i believe there may still be some type of infection on my computer. i ran the scans several tiems but now they are saying its clean. also whenever i go to check my yahoo mail, it freezes up and does not let me check my email but i can go to other websites so i dont know if a spyware or virus is causing this. any help would be apprecated.

i'd run ccleaner

http://filehippo.com...nload_ccleaner/

tuneup2007

http://www.tune-up.com/

you can see what's starting with the first button
under startup manager

second button, run cleanup/repair
there is a cleaner and reg cleaner
the rest of the optional buttons wouldn't help i think
30 day trial, then there is a waiting period before it starts

after setting a system restore point you may want to run this
it cleans pretty deep

tuneup2007 and ccleaner both have undo features
this next one does not

Hello deathcry,

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum. If you are unable to run and/or post a HJT log, then post that in your initial post in the topic you create in that forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
