Let us take a closer look at what is running on your PC. We'll need you to use a free diagnostic tool (HiJackThis) and post a log back here with the results.

Click the HijackThis Guide in my signature, download it and follow the instructions in the guide.

Most of what it lists will be harmless or even essential, DO NOT delete or modify anything yet! Someone will be along to tell you what steps to take after you post the contents of the scan results.

Thank you

Hi Thatman

What commands are you trying to run with Tasklist?? If you just go start - run - type in tasklist it will just flash across your screen. You can open a command prompt and type in tasklist /? to see the list of commands available. I know sometimes myself, I have placed a command in just the wrong location and received diddly, besides staring at the screen wondering huh.gif

For the runas command, I think you have to have either user@domain or Domain\Username for it to recoginize the user. Hope this helps.
