Task Manager virus

  mick73 11:56 21 Jun 2008

The virus causes task manager to open in the processes page and then opens many little windows? in the system tray. the computer is very slow and crashes a lot. It stops Spybot half way through th search and fills up AVG with hundreds of files, Avast! finds it but cannot remove it. Any help?

Superantivirus found and removed hundreds of files but did not find the virus.

Fruit bat I can`t remember what Avast! called it, I will run it again but it takes a few hours. Be patient with me I`m only a greenhorn..

Okay I ran the boot scan and while I was away from the m/c it finished the scan and then shut down and restarted. What do I do now?
