run system file checker to see if you have damaged files somewhere

thanks copyright. the link you have shown solved the same problem I had in my PC.
I think that a virus which launches itself from C:\heap41a\ is present and runs a process svchost.exe under the USER space ispresent. All we need to apply the registry patch shown by copyright in the cnet forumsis that we should stop the process from task amanegr by seeing the name of the proceess and 'username' as the login name of the user logged in right then. Then remove the virus using DOS from the directory C:\heap41a\ and install the registry patch. then reboot the system.
