Hello. My task manager and regedit are not working. I have tried many methods
into trying to get task manager to open, and I have had no luck. I think I
had a virus or work that deleted or modified the task manager itself or the
registry. I got the virus from limewire, and the details on the virus are: It
kept opening limewire by itself and the virus created a folder on my computer
called "complete" and files were created in there by the virus, and the files
multiplied in great number every minute. I found that "complete" file and
deleted the whole thing. It had 15,000 files in it at that point. I also ran
3 different virus scans and they detected 4 viruses and they are all cleaned
and my computer is virus free. And that brings me to the Task manager and
regedit. They simply do not open. If anybody can help I would be really
greatful. Thanks a lot!
