Hi. Recently, i visited a website called coolpics.com. After that, the entries in my "Internet Options" in IE (Tools->Internet OPtions->Home Page) has been changed to coolpics.com & the "Use Current", "Use default" & "Use Blank" buttons have been disabled as a result i am not able to change the entries here. Also, i am noticing that the "Task Manager" has been disabled (rt click on the task bar) OR CTRL+ALT+DEL. Finally, the "Run" option in the "START" menu in the task bar has also been removed. I am not able to launch the DOS command prompt. :flowers:

Plz let me know what this is & how do i remove this problem? :trumpet: :thumbsup:

Thanks a lot. Appreciate your help.

Hi vineethere and Welcome to Bleeping Computer,

Download and scan with AVG Anti-Spyware Free in Safe Mode.
Be sure to check for any updates to this program after you install it.

Then download,update and run SUPERAntiSpyware, free version for the Home User. Run This scan in Safe Mode also. If for some reason you can't access safe mode, for now run them in normal mode.

Please post back with any questions and results...
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.
