I've been having some issues regarding pop ups and some sort of adware that keeps showing up in my tray. Earlier today, I shut my computer down and when I went to reboot, my background comes up with no icons, tray or anything. I've tried to reboot it several times but it keeps doing the same thing. I tried to control-alt-del the system and I got an error message saying that the Task Manager has been disabled by the administrator. I'm completely at a loss as to what to do from this point.

It is possible that you may have a Malware issue. Malware advice can only be given by Staff Members and such subjects can only be discussed in the Malware Forums. START HERE...and post a new topic stating your problems HERE (No where else). When you get a clean bill of health from the Malware Staff, if you are still having problems, come back to This topic. Someone will be more than happy to assist you.
