Couple of days ago my laptop (Windows XP 2000)got affected by bad spy/malwares. Here are the symptoms:
1. Getting Task manager has been disabled by administrator error message when typing cntrl+alt+del or right clicking on the task bar
2. My wireless connestion is fine, but I can't go online using firefox or IE. Note: I have an application called "Free Call" which uses internet to make calls and this works fine, thus I believe that my internet connection is fine.
3. I was frustrated with not being able to go to the internet(!!!!!), so I ran Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware 1.28 and Super AntiSypware (hope it was allright to run these).
4. I was not able to update them before running the scan as it would not allow to do so. So I ran with whatever version I already had on my laptop. After the Super AntiSypware scan was done, I was not able to do a clean reboot as asked so had to do a hard shut down.

Is my laptop totally doomed? :thumbsup:
Thanks a lot!
