    HI all. I'm having a serious problem with my pc. Basically whenever I hit ctrl-alt-del to bring up task manager it will pop up for a second and then minimize itself to the taskbar. If I even try to put my mouse on the taskbar to open it back up Task Manager disappears. Could this be some kind of virus. I got hit by the MSBLAST virus and I'm trying to stop the process so that I can remove the files from my computer. Is there another way to end a process without task manager? Possibly through DOS or the Run prompt? It's getting severely annoying and it doesn't really do it all the time, although it has been doing it more often recently. :( This is a very frustrating problem and one that I would like to solve quickly. Any help will be greatly appreciated. :mad:

    Ok I ran virus scan from 2 different companies and stll have the problem. I was infected with the Nimbda virus as well as one other one that I can't remember now. Well the task manager still keeps on dissapearing. Virus scans bring up nothing anymore and show that my system is clean. Anyone have any new thoughts on my problem?
