Hi Arun,

I also faced the same problem last year. According to me download Kaspersky Internet Security 7.0.321 from their website, update it fully and run a full scan. Please uninstall ur prvious antivirus before installing KIS. But do some changes in ur Kaspersky-- In settings click scan>> action -- choose donot prompt for action. Then click customize in the same and choose scan all files under file types and password protected files under compound files. Finally click apply same for all the scan task settings.

I am sure that ur task manager will start working.
Thanks & Regards
aicarian

This user does not own kaspersky.

Lets see what SmitFraudFix turns up before moving on to general fixes.

Hi all,

Thank you for your suggestion and advices, i was able to overcome the problem of virus. I found the solution by scanning the system, there were few hidden files in C drive which the anti-virus couldn't recongise. Once i removed hidden status of the folder, the anti-virus was able to remove all the infection, and now the system is completely alright.

thanks and regards
Arun S

Hello arun_syakty,

I'm glad that things seem cleared up. Thanks for letting us know. Some of the malware may have been saved in System Restore. To prevent possible reinfection, lets flush the restore points.

The easiest and safest way to do this is:
  • Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click "System Restore".
  • Choose the radio button marked "Create a Restore Point" on the first screen then click "Next". Give the R.P. a name, then click "Create". The new point will be stamped with the current date and time. Keep a log of this so you can find it easily should you need to use System Restore.
  • Then use Disk Cleanup to remove all but the most recently created Restore Point.
  • Go to Start > Run and type: Cleanmgr
  • Click "Ok".
  • Click the "More Options" Tab.
  • Click "Clean Up" in the System Restore section to remove all previous restore points except the newly created one.
