Task manager and spyware

  Taw® 20:41 02 Oct 2004

Mate asked me to look at his computer as he was having trouble logging on to hotmail. System is full of spware I mean loads. Loaded spybot got rid of vast amount. Loaded spywareblaster loaded ok but would not run. Loaded adaware loaded ok but wouldnt run spywaregaurd loaded ok and shows his homepage being hijacked every few seconds. Anything I can do bar clean install? Also although he has administrator rights his "Task Manager" is greyed out and I cant access I dont think this is anything related just a setting needs adjusted

Download CWShredder click here

Run it in safe mode along with Ad-aware SE (with latest update). Access safe mode by tapping F8 key before Windows loads and select from menu that appears.
