Superantispyware may or may not remove it, this program will:

http://www.malwaresupport.com/mbam/program/mbam-setup.exe

Called malwarebytes antimalware. I use it three times a day. superantispyware is not bad, but malwarebytes will remove it in a quick scan without needing to go to safe mode. regardless, my suggestion download BOTH run BOTH in a full scan, start with malware bytes full scan after updating them both. then reboot and run full scan of the superantispyware as well, do this for every login. it will also fix the hijacked backround, and the missing tabs in video properties. which I can also help you with but it should do this for you automatically, also NOD32 will keep it out once it's removed:

I HAVE THIS VIRUS CALLED PYAGCORE.SEARCH AND THIS WON,T LET ME USE MESSANGER HOW CAN I REMOVE THIS VIRUS


Open up Task Manager. Look for a process called kiwee.exe. If it exists, highlight it and click on End Process. Open up Windows Explorer and browse to C:\Program Files\Kiwee Toolbar. Right-click on the Kiwee Toolbar folder and select Delete. Confirm the deletion when prompted.

You should also install some kind of anti-virus software on your system. AVG is a decent free option as are Avast and Avira. If you don't want to manually remove this virus, you can download and install AVG 8.5 free edition and have it run a full scan once you have it installed and it will be able to remove this virus (and any others that happen to be lurking on your system).

DVD-RW optical drive not working properly


The two symptoms could be attributed to a viral activity. Some viruses will disable your CD/dvd burner for the reasons you cannot make a backup copy with your important files.

I suggest, it is safer to scan your harddrive using another clean computer with a good antivirus and malware remover.

Even I too experienced that everytime when you access cmd,msconfig,task manager, sytem restore, registry editor there's some kind of counter. Until you reach the number of times you access that it will release its destructive job. For me it also block me of using USB, even floppy.

Commonly this is a Vundo activity. Many free antivirus can disinfect this. Disinfecting directly from its own hard drive. But the risk of your important files is the priority that is why I suggest to it using another computer. But it is your call.

I recommend Avira, malwarebytes antimalware. Install, update then scan. And still check your DVD burner for hardware defect.

I think this should be enough. Just ask again.

Serious TaskManager Problem!!


Task Manager can be disabled by 2 main ways..
[1] Either there is a virus on your machine--
[2]Or It was manually disabled.
--The 1st solution is to get an anti virus which is up to date and run a virus scan to delete the viruses that maybe present.

--The second solution is that on your START MENU, click on "run".
On 'run' type "gpedit.msc"..
Under the "User Configuration" , click on " Administrative Templates"..
Then you double click on "system" .Double click on "Ctrl+Alt+Del Options"... Double Click on " Remove Task Manager" and click on "Disable"... Click on "Apply" and "Ok"
Your Task Manager should now work !!!
