Can anyone help with this? Can't perform the tasks requested prior to the post.
from reading on the various message boards I suspect this is a virus. Can't run any virus scan, etc.
If one of them is deleted from the task manager more take its place.
CPU useage spikes up and down.
Then system reboots after about 20 minutes of this.

Try to run your scans in safe mode.

If that doesn't work, follow the instructions in this link: start here and begining at (9) - Download HijackThis and create a log. Place your log here.

Hope this helps... if you have any questions, please ask.

Thanks, can't run McAfee. PC Doctor didn't pick up anything. I can't download to the pc as I can't get on the net. (on my lap top now) Am I missing something regarding downloading HijackThis?
