    Could anyone give me advice, would be gratefully recieved?

    I recently found the 'Hacked by Godzilla message' on the blue bar of Internet explorer.

    In accordance with advice that i sought i attempted to delete the ms32dd and autorun.inf files, the files on c:/ and my external were deleted happily enough, but the c:/windows versions wouldnt delete as the processes were running.

    So this is where my problem occurs, I opened up the task manager in order to delete the processes, BUT... the task manager does not seem fully functional. It seems to lack the tabs on the top half that are usually there and I am unable to navigate from the 'programs' bit of task manager. thus rendering me unable to halt the processes, and so unable to get rid of ms32dll etc.

    I have been really perplexed by this, can anyone help


    thanks alot

    usually it doesn't 'default' at all, it's supposed to 'remember' the last setting

    post a hijackthis log file here.

    I am new at all this. I need some information on where to start to check for problems with the speed of my PC. Should I be concerned about cookies?
    Thank you in advance for any help I receive.
