I do ctrl+alt+del and task manager pops open for a fraction of a second and closes. Keep trying and same thing. Can't get it to stay open. Any suggestions? I cleaned MSblast out last week. Could this be a variant?
I am having the same trouble as well. I can't get task manager to stay open, also I'm having trouble installing or running any antivirus software. I was able to download the security patch for the blaster worm, but have not been able to remove it. I cannont find the msblast.exe file anywhere on the machine.
The scan at pandasoftware.com worked the charm. I can now open my task manager and it stays open. The online scan checked over 95,000 files on my c drive and found 44 infected files. The scan disinfected those files and now the task manager function works fine. Anyone using this free online virus scan beware - it takes a long time - a couple hours but is worth it!
it might take that long if you have so many files infected...I have 140GB and run it often and takes a few minutes for my entire PC. Normally, I just check the folder where I do my downloads and it takes a few seconds.
