This was my first thread that has a screenshot of the task manager problem I'm having. http://www.geekstogo...showtopic=62462
I watched the processes screen after I restarted my computer. It would be displaying everything normally and would flash several of the same .exes that I've never heard of. After my computer was done loading, I minimized it and when I maximized it again all of those blank names, symbols, etc. were there.
I've downloaded and ran all the programs in the thread I was directed to, except for a couple (reason why listed later). I got rid of a lot of infections, but my main problem wasn't fixed. Today I also noticed a few other problems I'm having.
- Cannot launch the install .exes of AdAware and Spybot: S&D or the programs themselves (the current ones I already have). I haven't noticed this problem in the past, and it has not been corrected through the various scans or restarts I've done today. After I click it it just doesn't do anything. I've tried downloading both several times, but always the same thing happens.
- I was trying to install Windows Media Player 10 today and it gave me an error saying: "System Restore is turned off. If you continued Setup, you will be unable to use System Restore to restore the version of Windows Media Player that was included with the Windows operating system that your computer is running. etc. etc..." This is a little off-topic from the main problem, but any ideas on this?
- Internet Explorer won't load any pages. I normally don't use it but have needed to on a few occasions and it just doesn't work. It's the newest version and I have tried updating it.
Anyway, on to the important stuff. (Will be posting it)
Edit: My logs were too large to put in this post (much larger than everyone else's that I checked for some reason...), so here are links to them.
Many thanks for help on my issues!
