Task manager wont open

  drewett 11:01 26 Oct 2007

Task manager just will not open on my laptop. Its only happened recently so i'm guessing its spyware.

I have tried a spyware cleaner but i still cant access task manager.

I have windows 2000 so its not the windows xp problem.

Was wondering if anyone could help me.

I have managed to recover the task manager.

Could someone point me in the direction of some free spyware protection software ie. firewall etc.

Have just tried installing a firewall but get
"error 1304. Error writing to file: ......Smc.exe
Verify that you have access to that directory"

Any help much appreciated

My brothers pc has lost task manager, when he hits the cntrl alt del keys, it just says this has been disabled by the adminastrator, but when you go his user profile he is logged on as admin, e is not on any network just a stand alone pc.
