I've got a friends machine that has been assaulted
by some sort of bot program I imagine, and he attempted
to download some fix it utility which to me also looks
like some sort of nefarious program. I've got most of it cleaned
off now, but the Task Manager is still disabled so I can't check
running processes to verify, not to mention it's a handy thing
to be able to use ctl+alt+del!!
I've perused the web and found numerous solutions but none seem to
be working. Can we compile a list of methods in a thread here?
I'd appreciate it. This is an XP pro box I believe, but could also
be Home. If you post solutions here please specify which platform it
is for.

Vista...Why risk it? Fdisk it!
