Sounds like possibly a trojan, try going start>run>cmd then type in tasklist it should show you your running processes, then if you find something abnormal, use taskkill /PID xxx of the process.

Have you tried starting in Safe Mode? That'll mean any rogue process shouldn't start (with any luck).

Default Re: Task Manager and CMD problem

i have the same problem. i went to start, run and then it says open so i type in tasklist as "uid=[0]" says. then a box pops up and says this:

C:\\WINNT\System32\tasklist.com
C:\\WINNT\SYSTEM32\AUTOEXEC.NT. The system file is not suitable for running MS-DOS and Microsoft Window applications. Choose 'Close' to terminate the application.

any help? thanks
