I imagine he ran process explorer
http://www.sysintern...ssExplorer.html
ended some unknown processes, and then got task manager to run
(a malware program can prevent task manager from running).

Ideally, you should visit the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top.

Ok... it comes back after I restart my computer... I kill the 2 windows messenger processes... and the windows update, and then it works again. THen I goto replace Task Manager but and then Undo it but I dont think that does anything.
