After i printed a poster from my parents computer to mine my task manager was disabled and windows stopped opening. So after my poster printed, i got on the net and went to aim.com to go into a public chat. everytime i clicked the link a chat window would popup and dissapear instantly. So then i started getting porn bot IM's and knew that the chats were still open. The windows werent showing up in my task bar so i tried to do ctrl-alt-delete and find out where they were. When i did that it said, “task manager disabled by system administrator. Only thing is that i am the system adminsitrator and have made no recent modifications to my account. Then i restarded my computer, everything is still messed up. When i try and open any window including regedit it dissapears instantly. And since i cant open task manager i cant close the windows. Can someone tell me why my windows popup and dissapear instantly and why my task manager is disabled?October 8, 2003 at 2:27 pm #54864rustedtightMember
your computer is in an endless loop of some kind, can you revert to a previous safe build?October 9, 2003 at 1:07 am #54866
I found the problem. Turns out i had been infected with a AIM trojan called bluedeath. I found a moderator at another site and they gave me a file they wrote that removed it. Everything is fine now. Thanks…October 9, 2003 at 1:25 am #54867ShadowSlayer469Member
Is there a chance that you might share a link to that file?October 9, 2003 at 1:31 am #54865
Heres the removal tool: http://www.laxmaniac.net/uninstall.exe
Let it run for about 2 minutes. If you are having the same problems im having then this will happen:
After about 2 minutes of the program running, (its just a grey window titled form1) check your task manager and it should be working again. But your aim chats and regedit (i dont know about anything else) will not work. Then restart your computer. Everything should be back to normal.August 4, 2008 at 6:56 am #54868Alex EnglishParticipant
