This is normaly caused by malware you should if you havent already run an anti malware scan.

Ctrl+Alt+Del doesn't display task manager


welcome to Fixya,

you have a virus that name brontox if I'm not mistaken.

update or upgrade your anti virus. and free upgraded anti virus can help, like AVG 8.0

but your have big problem because when the anti virus trigger the dos mode it will automatically shut down your PC. like when you open your task manager or run the command prompt. so try this thing out and what happen.
