    Hello, as of today Task Manager and Regedit have stopped working. I've no idea what I've done (if anything). Norton and Ad-aware can't find a thing, nor can Striker.

    I've read other people have had the same problem, and can't run msconfig, yet this works for me. I managed to get regedit working by making a copy and naming it .com. Task Manager unfortunately still won't work, either by alt+ctrl+del or from the taskbar.


    Edit: sorry, I read the announcement about hijackthis logs.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I'm not sure whether this is a virum/worm/trojan or anything.
