How do I get my Task Manger back?

By francojd ·
I installed a spyware on my home PC and it would hang up the system everytime I connected to the internet and it also grayed out the Task Manager function on the control alt delete, so how can I get this back when I dont remember how to get into the spyware program. I thought I unistalled it but the task manager is still unavailable.

Usually when system programs such as task manager are blank, the control panel is empty, etc... you have a virus.

Ensure you have the latest updates from microsoft 1st, then goto www.lavasoftusa.com and get adaware... install it, update it, rub it... remove bad files, reboot pc.

Update anti-virus and run a full scan.

you should run Ad-Aware and SpyBot both are free downloads from Download.com. Also install and run HiJack This!, this is also available from download.com

On a side note I personally would reccommend you to install Firefox or Firebird from Mozialla as it has less exploits then IE does.

Hope you solve your problem.
