Hi Guys,

In my system the task manager and regedit have been disabled by a spy ware,the spy ware as disabled my anti virus and doesn't allow to install any anti virus also.anti spy wares from yahoo and google are able to delete it but it reapears in no time.
Formating the c drive and reinsatlling also didnt help maybe the virus is in d or e drive and attacks again.
Its called disable task manager reg entry and its annoyance type, any idea how to remove this.

OS:win xp pro

There are many methods, but if you are not expert in solving, its best to format the OS. The other methods are quite complex and generally I dont recommend this because if they are not done properly, the problem will remain.

EDIT : Refer to this thread for you problem. Another user has posted his problem and you may get a solution from the posts.

Nothing else, just ran a chkdsk from the Recovery Console.

Reddy, since the virus appeared again after reinstalling the OS, it seems that some of your files on D, E drive are infected. The way these viruses/trojans work is that there are 2 components of the trojan -
1. the program that is the actual virus and
2. a program that sits in the background and constantly monitors whether any of the virus files have been deleted or altered. If they are, this program reinstalls the virus.

The key to effectively removing this sort of virus is to remove both components. If you know what type of virus it is, you can get instructions off the net (from AVG/Norton/Kapersky etc) on how to remove it.

Else, try a reinstallation again. This time after the re-installation , do not execute any program or install any apps from your D & E drives. Download an anti-virus and anti-spyware tool, install them and scan all your drives and see if you can clean the infection.

I forgot to mention one thing.
Take ghost image as soon as you install the OS and all the necessary drivers. Whenever the problem crops up, you have the ghost image at rescue. Within 10-15 minutes, you have once again you have OS i.e. as good as fresh installation.

I use Ubuntu 6.10. Just was exploring options of running something on the lines of dosfsck on the NTFS drive.
AFAICT, XP and later (ie., vista) use the NTFS file system. I think you should ntfsfix from linux. And I strongly suggest keeping a cd / bootable USB stick of a linux rescue / swiss army knife. There are specialised linux based distros for rescuing M$ systems. Google will show them.

@reddy6980 - since you have tried formatting, I want to know if formatting c drive can cause any risk to d,e, drives. My data is on the d,e drives and i am scared ti format the c drive as the system them may fail to recognise the other partitioned drives.
