Hi atearwhofellnot!

I suggest you go to the Malware Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post a HiJackThis Log in THAT forum.

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).

Why are you wanting to close out "files running from system" from the Task manager? You can close down running processes from within the software, usually, and Windows needs some of those system processes to run. Access may be denied because the process is in use, and closing it would crash the computer. What exactly are you trying to shut down, and why?

Yes, That is common knowledge but many programs once shutdown also run backround processes that cannot be shutdown from within the program and thats what I'm trying to close. Also some system process that cannot be turned off from other areas of access can normally be shutdown or refreshed by terminating them from the task manager.


the Issue is simple I was able to close them. Now I can't.
:/

Its its running from Local Or System I get access denied.

Well SYSTEM processes most of the time can't be turned off because they are critical to the running of the computer. Most local processes can be terminated at will, but since you can't I reinterate that you should go to the Malware Forum and run the self-help tools listed there. Most likely it is malware related because the malware doesn't want you to be able to kill the process associated with it and therefore has made it so you cannot kill any process.
