Well picked this up on some random site, my firewall detected it but didn't stop it.

It wants an internet connection everytime I boot up, so its blocked completely under my Firewall (ZoneAlarm)

Its also disabled my Task Manager. When I try to bring it up I get, "Task manager has been disabled by administrator." My computer doesnt have multi log ons, its one single log on, which is administrator.

Kernels8 is in my registry. How do I kill it and enable task manager again?

Personally, I would post a HighJack This log and let the experts that work that forum take a look. Rarely are you infected with only one thing anyway. There may be other issues at work here.

For help with removing your infection I would like to refer you to the Highjack This (HJT) forum here at BleepingComputer.com:

First: Read the Preparation Guide found HERE. It is very important that you follow ALL of the instructions found within. (There are many important steps in this guide that may clean your computer.)

Second: Post your system information along with a brief description of the problems you are having, and your HJT log in the HJT forum found HERE.

NOTE: Please, after you post your HJT log DO NOT make another post in the HJT forum until it has been responded to by a member of the HJT Team. The first thing they look for, when looking for logs to reply to, is 0 replies. If you make another post there will be 1 reply. The team member glancing over the replies might think someone is already helping you out and will not respond. So, just make your post and let it sit there until a team member responds. The volunteers who work that forum are very busy, so please be patient and wait. It can sometimes take a few days for a response. If after 5 days you still have gotten no response, then post a link to your HJT log HERE.

Third: If, after finishing your work with the folks at the HJT forum you have issues with XP related to the removal of the infection, then come to the other forums and let us help you get your computer back to normal.

You are in good hands! Good luck!
