Try downloading "starter" click here - it will bring up a list of all your startup items and all running processes and give you the option to terminate them

If Task Manager flashes up for a while then disappears, usually it's caused by a virus. Quite often the same symptom applies to msconfig and regedit.

Test the other 2. click Start, Run, type msconfig and Press Enter. Click Start, Run, type regedit and Enter. See if the windows stay open.

If not, you've got a virus.

To use the applications in the meantime, make a copy of the exe files, and rename the extension to .com, then double click the .com files to use them.

Update your virus definitions and do a complete scan.

It could be a number of viruses causing this, and some of them are hard to detect, even by some of the most popular Antivirus programs.
