    Taskmanager, NAV, REGEDIT, MSCONFIG and ZoneAlarm will not start. This is a little worrying but I have run a Trend housecall scan, an Ad-Aware scan and a Spybot S&D scan and these cleaned out all the viruses, spyware and other crap that they found. This could be a bug in windows but I dont know
    My Operating system is Windows XP SP1

    Sounds like the bagle virus making the rounds again. Goto symantec's website and follow their instructions. Just got to boot into safe mode and clean up a few things

    Its okay I fixed it, the virus created a process called mswinrpc.exe which was causing it, used security task manager to get rid of it.
