"task mgr failed to initialize". Why would it do such a thing, and how can I fix it?

Also, when I tried to reboot, I got this message:

"This program is not responding. Card reader monitor 9360 4.5"

For starters, what program did you install before the error? Software for the card reader? If yes, try to get into safemode and remove it

That's one of the weird parts; I wasn't installing a program, I was calling up the task mgr because the computer crashed on AOL 9.0.

In the midst of the shutdown phase, I got "the card reader error" message. After which I got "the program is not responding", so I just clicked "shut down".

The first step (IMO) is to check for malware that has evaded your current protection. Try one of these free, online scans:

If the system is clean, then we'll have to start looking at other OS related causes.
