  1. After re-enabling all the items in the msconfig startup section, it started saying "task manager has been disabled by your administrator". Kept having to go into the registry to fix it. Ive also just installed bitdefender 2008 total security which helped with the taskman. It now hangs on the shutdown screen for some reason. (just says 'Windows is shutting down') but then im forced to hold the off button down... thanks for your help

I could offer more assistance for the filenames that look odd, but you'd have to re-enable them in msconfig so that I can see them - they don't show up in your hijackthis log if they're disabled from startup. What kind of popups are you getting? sari Hey there, sorry ive taken so long to reply. Been on holidays and didnt have to worry about computers. My brother has been using it and said it froze
  4.
