task manager, device manager won't open

Discussion in 'Computer Security' started by =?Utf-8?B?YmFtYW5vbGU=?=, Jun 9, 2005.

  1. s'm running XP SP2 and can't open either task manager or device manager. Both
    just flash for an instant and disappear. I assume I'm the victim of a virus
    or worm but have no idea what it might be. I've scanned (and preusmably
    corrected) with Panda, Spy-bot and AdAware but the problem remains. Computer
    seems fine otherwise except that I can't use any Start-Run commands either.
    One of the scand indicated something about Exploit Byte Verify. Are my
    symptoms something this would cause and how do correct whatever it may be.
    Thanks.
