Have you updated, and run your antivirus?
Have you done any online virus scans?
Have you run any Spyware/Malware programs?
What Spyware/Malware programs do you use?
Were there any error messages?
If so, what was the exact error message?

Hey there,

The fact that you have these problems are normally related to malware.
You need an antivirus and a firewall as soon as you can, it's imperative.
This is somewhat suicidal in today's digital world.
You need to install an antivirus program as soon as you can and run a complete scan of the computer.
AVG and Avast are excellent, free antivirus programs..
Never install more than one antivirus on your system - several together can cause problems and decrease performance.

You are also missing a firewall, which is another essential piece of computer software.
I would certainly recommend you install one, but it is perhaps not as important as an antivirus.
Zonealarm, and Kerio are also good, free firewalls.
You can read this tutorial for more infomation:
Understanding and using firewalls.

The Cntrl+Alt+Del problem is related to your taskmanager.
Noew let's try a simple fix to get this back:

Please open notepad and and copy and paste next bold in it:
(don't forget to copy and paste REGEDIT4)

REGEDIT4

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
"DisableTaskMgr"=-

Save this as "fix.reg" Choose to save as *all files and place it on your desktop.
It should look like this: Posted Image
Doubleclick on it and when it asks you if you want to merge the contents to the registry, click yes/ok.

Do you have a valid XP cd?

If so, place it in your CD ROM drive and follow the instructions below
Start > Run > cmd then type
sfc /scannow (note the space)
Let this run untill you get a message saying it is complete.
sfc- system file checker, retrieves the correct version of the file from %Systemroot%\System32\Dllcache or the Windows installation source files, and then replaces the incorrect file. If you want to see what was replaced, right click My Computer > manage, expand event viewer > system.
This should replace cmd.exe if it has been removed.

If the cmd.exe problem still exists, please run a scan of your PC for cmd.exe and see what it finds.
If nothing is found in the system32 you need to download a new one and copy it there.
You can download a cmd.exe from here.
Extract the file and copy it to this folder:
C:\Windows\System32

Now reboot and let me know if either the problems are solved.

Run these online virus scanners:

Also this online Trojan scanner:
TrojanScan

Are you using these basic security programs?
(They're all free.)

AVG Anti-Spyware - Windows 2000 and XP, only.
Ad-Aware
Spybot S&D
Spywareblaster
SpywareGuard

If not, you need to. These programs, updated and used regularly, will do a lot to keep your computer clean of spyware, trojans, keyloggers, browser hijackers, etc...

Download them, update them, and then run them.
