When i hit cntl-alt-del to try to start task manager, it appears briefly and then disappears. I see the icon for it also in the system tray but then when I go to rest the cursor on it, it too disappears. ALSO...I have tried to Run/Regedit but regedit does not come up (again it looks like something flashes quickly on the screen but I cannot fire up REGEDIT) here is some info...please advise what can I do?

I've run adaware and spybot search and destroy..and here is a hijack this log:

Well usually when TaskManager and regedit have been disabled
by trojanZzz, third-party substitutes still work and do a better job anyway ;)

http://www.resplendence.com/reglite
http://www.sysintern...e/procexp.shtml

Run process explorer, find:
C:\WINDOWS\System32\YAHOOMSG.EXE
RightClick and 'kill it'.

Find 'YAHOOMSG.' in System32 folder zip it up and submit
it by clicking on the 'submit' tab in my signature!
Delete it and it's copy,
(That's not 'yahoo' but an evil imposter...)

Follow up by fixing in hijackthis:

*O3 - Toolbar: (no name) - {BA52B914-B692-46c4-B683-905236F6F655} - (no file)
*O4 - HKLM\..\Run: [Yahoo Messenger] YAHOOMSG.EXE
*O4 - HKCU\..\RunOnce: [Yahoo Messenger] YAHOOMSG.EXE
*O8 - Extra context menu item: LimeShop Preferences - file://C:\Program Files\LimeShop\System\Temp\limeshop_script0.htm

Highly recommended you'd get rid of 'LimeShop'! Full of bundlew@re!

Good luck!

Hello,
I have the same problem... sorry, probably I don't understand correctly what to do. I am not able to find any "YAHOOMSG" etc... on my laptop.
As you (probably) know, many other applications do not work.
Please, help... sigh! Ciao,
Luis
