what? Just hit ctrl+alt+delete and choose task manager. Otherwise the virus is still there.

oh and make sure you're in Safe Mode

Hmm.....You need to get rid of the virus first, but what makes you think that task manager is deleted?

Make sure the virus is gone first - Boot the computer into safe mode and run a virus checker like Avira Antivir (you can download it on my website at www.mhare.com.au). Once you are sure the virus is gone then run a repair on windows using your windows cd.

No, actually. You can insert the windows CD and run a repair installation without losing any data or application. Be sure you do not use "recovery console" to repair your operating system, though.

This sounds like the logical answer. I don't have an XP pc to test it on but it sounds reasonable. Give it a try and let us know.

Haha this guy is right. On XPs when you double click the outside bar the tabs disappear Should be a very easy fix
