    Need Help With Taskmanager Problem!!

    About a week ago, i checked my gmail email, it was supposely from a friend of mine that had me in his address book, and i opened the file. It was similar to what Some other guy had, that i read earlier. However, this one disappeared and i cannot find the damn thing. My taskmanager will not show up. At first, i thought i deleted it by mistake like i did a year ago, but that is not the case. Can anyone tell me how i can get my taskmanager back? I feel naked without it. Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    It looks to me like a virus is running some sort of malware (if that makes sense) which prevents you from opening the taskbar, in order to prevent you from terminating the virus. Of course, without a task manager, it would hard to tell if a virus is running, but that's the whole point.

    My recommendation is to boot up in safe mode and run a virus scanner. Once the virus is removed, I have a sneaking suspicion that your task manager wil reappear.

    Did you try to see what processes are running via ms-dos ?

    tasklist is the command, use tasklist /? to see what you can do with it....

        associated task(s)/process(es) currently running on either a local or
