Do you havethis file? C:Windows\System32\taskmgr.exe

After all these infections, won't it be better, at least, overinstall Windows and then update Windows again?

Well i tryed that once before and i actually lost access to other data i had on my hard drive, games and stuff.

I figured since Avast doest clean your registry, id take a look in to some things and see what i could do. The taskbar issue i actually fixed, but now i just noticed this morning that i seem to be locked out of changing my background picture.

I know this is off topic but i tryed to delet this particular file from within "Tempory Internet Files" and for some reason i couldnt, so i tryed to delet it from the command prompt "cmd" and it said it couldnt find the file.

 :)  Hi "113081" :

     Some files with "temp" are actually very serious spyware
     and its removal should be guided by an antiSPYWARE
     Expert; what antiSPYWARE program(s) have you run &
     what were the results ? I suspect you should be asking
     for help in the Support forums of your antispyware
     Provider !?
