I've seen various spyware packages that carry the ability to close down the task manager so that yuo cannot see the process running. These also come with the ability to return false results to some of the more popular virus and adware scanners.

You coul try running Hijack this to get a definitive list of all the processes running.

Sounds like that - either try hijack or format the computer. They're buggers those ones.
