Hi and welcome to Bleeping. :thumbsup:

You have a nasty worm which has disabled your Task Manager and Registry Editor.


Step 1

Please ensure you have Windows configured to 'Show all hidden files & folders'.

Also familiarise with rebooting into 'Safe Mode'.

Copy the below steps to notepad, close Internet Explorer and disconnect from the internet.


Step 2

Run HJT again and checkmark the boxes next to the following:-

O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Windows Generic Proc] procmsg.exe
O4 - HKLM\..\RunServices: [Windows Generic Proc] procmsg.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\Run: [Windows Generic Proc] procmsg.exe
O4 - HKCU\..\RunServices: [Windows Generic Proc] procmsg.exe

All the 016's please. They will reinstall the next time you visit those sites.
