Operating System Version: Xp Pro
Problem Application Name & Version:
Problem Hardware Make & Model:
Error Messages: None

     Ok so i can solve most problems on my own but im totaly dumbfounded with this new problem. The problem is that something is stopping me from doing anything on my computer eg. load programmes or even worst it wont let me access Task Manager to see what program is doing this. Also my computer is slowed down massively.

I have tried:
=> Restarting to no effect
=> running existing spyware software to no effect
=> Uninstalling any programmes installed in the last few days
=> installing virus programmes - but as i said the computer wont let me start any programmes instalations etc.

Main two problems, Cant start programmes (so i cant use my virus software) and cant start the Task manager (so i can see the programme thats causing the problem)

Can anyone help me?!

Sounds like a virus. Can you get "HijackThis",save it to a folder and then get it to do a scan.Save the scanned log and post it here.

You are infected with a virus or spyware.

You'll need an external program to close down the active process giving you the problems.
