Hello, I am new member and as most new members very frustrated with this piece of plastic sitting beside me call a PC. And as my background, I am embarassed to say, I am a CNE for Novell networking and a level 5 MSE. And as you read on you will see why I am embarassed!

My wife just paid a computer shop $200 to clean it up and the PC came home, got hook to the internet and within a week it "Windows Protection Suite" hit it. Once it got on the computer it disabled or re-wrote task manager or ???? Anyway it does not work now.

What can I do to get task manager working again? To fully remove "Windows Protection Suite" I need to stop some processes running and without task manager I can't do it. I have edited the registry all I can. I have tried all the different ways to launch task manager, no good. I have built the different files suggested to restart taskmanager, no good.

So, how do I get my taskmanager working again? I don't want to have to reinstall Windows if I can help it.

I suggest you to disinfect your PC first as hamluis as already said.

In the meanwhile, for re-enabling Taskmanager, goto Kelly's page here : http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htm (Number 113 on left side)

Download sper anti spyware or malware bytes. Super comes with a repair option and malware bytes will detect the disabled task manager and re enable it.But I would run MBAM anyway to clean off win protection anyway.
