I don't know what to do, please :tazz:

I don't know if this is any useful infomation but, this all started after a crash while playing Starcraft Broodwar, I tried closing it through task manager and then task manager ends up freezing also. So I reseted the computer manually..

Now the symptoms came back after I played Brood War and rebooted..

Same reason why I started this topic, yes its not showing, it ends up at the system tray. By the way, what is the update on the HJT log? Should I remove anything in there.

There, I attached all registrys from Policies and folders under Policie which is Explorer.

You should look at the screenshots first to see which one is under which.

And as for Brood Wars. I'm not sure if that is the start to all of these problems, but that is the only thing that crashed before everything happened.

Meaning, after Brood Wars crashed, I started having this taskmgr problem, and I stopped playing it, then after the first time I was able to use taskmgr for a hour or so, I thought I could relaxed by playing Brood Wars, but after I finished Brood Wars and turned on the computer the next day, the taskmgr problem came back... So I'm suspicious it could be Brood Wars, should I remove it?
