Does Ctrl+Shift+Esc work?

Try the System File Checker...go to the Start Menu and click Run..., then type sfc /scannow (note the space). You will need your XP CD to run this. Then, restart and try again.

Have you got the option to try another keyboard? - could be a faulty key.

If you got to Start - Run - type in taskmgr - do you get there with that?

Take a look here http://www.techspot....rk-HJT-log.html

This seems to be exactly the same problem.

See what others think before you use Hijack This ( you can do serious damage) - you may need to refer this to the malware forum.

Suggest you wait for a second opinion.

Thanks for the update!
Others with the same problem will appreciate it! :tazz:

That means that it was most likely a system file that became corrupted, and the scan fixed the file.

this is [bleep]ing lame! sry to say it, but its now working again it wasn't the scannow thing that worked it just worked temporarily, of course because it fixed all the problems, but i found out what it was because i had the same thing 2 times before...
its the winupdate.exe the windows updater that sort of tries to update EVEN though i got it disabled, you know you can do that in your control panel and then system... but i run ed regedit, and searched for winupdate and i deleted the one i found and i restarted and now my task manager works perfect :tazz:
what the [bleep] is Microsoft doing? :)

some other way to terminate this totally??? so it doesn't happen again...

Hi help meee, welcome to GTG. That winupdate.exe program you mentioned is not the actual Windows Update program, but rather malware.

Please go to the malware forum and follow the instructions at the top....Especially the CLICK HERE .
That will give you several steps that will help you clean up 70 percent of all problems by yourself. If at the end of the process you are still having difficulty--and you may not be-- then post a hijackthis log in THAT forum.
If you are still having problems after getting a clean bill of health from the malware expert, please return to this thread.

-Ryan
