I'm running windows xp. It's the computer my kids use and I do have virus protection and a firewall activated. Yesterday, the display was all messed up, somehow I fixed that by scanning for viruses, (it didn't find any), running spybot, ad-aware, and scandisk. I still cannot get access to device manager. When I click on it, it looks like its coming up and then disappears. I also cannot run defragement. Please help!

Try MicroSoft Spyware . This only works in XP.I used it and it uncovered several nasty little critters .
