I have gone by the instructions given on this web site. It says to download "Process Explorer" into my C:\ folder, then to remane it ............ and then to launch it. Thats as far as I can go ......it will not launch.

I am assuming you are running Process Explorer because you suspect malware. If Process Explorer won't run it may be that it is being stopped from running.

Rename it as Iexplore.exe and try again. If it still won't run rename it to iexplore.scr and try that.

Sounds like you may have a few more issues on the machine then. Process Explorer is a very straightfoward program and should run.

Post in the Am I Infected forum and ask someone there to take a proper look at your PC.

When re booting your computer, as your system starts up press Ctrl ,Alt, Delete, Windows Task manager will appear, click on Security tools, Then "End Task" to stop it running - it might take a couple of try's, once it's stopped you will be able to run your anti- malware program and delete the Trojans usually 3, After your computer re boot's run a registry repair program, it took me less than 24 hrs to find a fix, good luck
