My desktop and browser were hijacked, with the malware opening alerts about spyware and taking me to antispywareupdate.net. The infection locked me out of Task Manager.

I was unable to install ATF Cleaner, but did establish a new System Restore point and flush the old one. I ran AVG Antispyware but was unable to get a log. I got more control over my desktop after running Super Antispyware, in that the "warning" icon disappeared from my tray and windows no longer opened automatically with warnings or to take me to the antispywareupdate.net web page. I then ran Panda and HijackThis and saved the logs.

I am still locked out of Task Manager.

Any help would be greatly, greatly appreciated.

Here is my HijackThis log.
