Scan your computer using an anti virus such as:
AVG or Avast!

Then try using Ad-Aware 2007 FREE and Spybot S&D.

Scan your computer using the above and remove all the infected files.

This will work with XP Pro.

Click on 'Start' then 'Run...'.

Then type gpedit.msc and click on Ok.

In the window that appears double click the following folders...

User Configuration then Administrative Templates then System then Ctrl+Alt+Delete Options then Remove Task Manager.

Double click on Remove Task Manager and select 'Not Configured'.

This should do it.
