Whenever I try to press Ctrl+Alt+Delete it opens the task manager, as soon as I move my mouse though, it closes. The same thing happens when I open Msconfig... I move my mouse, the program closes.

It's driving me crazy. Why is it doing this, how do i fix it? Thanks.

I'm running Windows XP BTW.

Get rid of the virus that has infected your machine.

Or, If the virus is removed already,then fix the damage it has done.

Both of which we can help you with but first...

Are you running an up to date anti-virus program?

And is everything else running fine?

No, I'm not currently running an up to date virus software... Yeah, this is what I get.

Everything else seems to be running fine, aside from the closing of those programs the system appears to be running normal.

I'm kind of low on money currently, and I can't afford to buy any anti-virus software... Is there any way I can get it out without shelling out money? Manually maybe? Or a free program?

Ok I just read that page and saw the software was free, sorry about that.

I ran Procexeplorer and couldn't find any processes running with the name Netstatt.exe, what do I do now?

Download, install, update and run the virus scanner.

Come back when you've done that.
