Hi. I was brought here by a chance of events that led me to the repairing of a seriously screwed up computer. In an attempt to kill pop ups on the computer I was working on, the owner deleted several registry files which in turn broke several important applications within the XP Core software. Task Manager was busted. broke, finito, and they were still getting some serious pop ups. God it was messy. Every ten seconds. It sucked. Anyways,

I downloaded a Windows Registry Repair program, ran it and found 850 problems with the registry. Fixed those, which in turn fixed the task manager problem.

XP's Task Manager BLOWS so I went to www.sysinternals.com and downloaded their awesome app, Process Explorer which replaces the task manager with a more user friendly detailed interface. ITS Just friggin steamin let me tell you.

It took me forever to get it to work tho, because I didn't know that the Microsoft built in Firewall also prevents you from running applications that interfere with core software processes, but I turned that off, and voila I had my task manager. The Manager popped up and there were a bleep load of infections that several other programs were runnng.

I tracked a majority of them down and deleted those. Then I had programs like binvga.exe, and wsup.exe that everytime I stopped the process it would move to run under another application. I looked up Binvga on google and was directed to this website and a forum thread that absolutely was awesome.

That my friends is why I'm here and how I got here.
