    Basically it wont show up when I press crtl alt del, i copied taskmgr.exe and renamed it and ran it that way and it worked fine, so obviously there is something stopping taskmgr.exe from running and i think i found the culprit. its called winkqkd.exe, i ran hijackthis and it says that its located in system32, but when i go there i cant find it. if i run regedit, and search my registry i can find some stuff relating to it, but i cant delete it, it wont let me

    Well I usually stick the affected hard drive in a machine with a current antivirus and scan it from there. Or you can try booting in safe mode and running an antivirus from a CD. But I do this stuff all day so I have more tricks than the average user has at his disposal.
