Re: No Task Manager

Not cross posted - posted to different groups.
There was a program called Internet Security 2010 which came from somewhere. It
persisted and could not be eliminated or canceled. I use Vipre as my anti-virus program
and it listed it as a high risk entry along with a Trojan. I cleaned them both and then
found that my Task Manager is not available. In doing a Search for files or folders I do
not find taskmgr.exe. Is there a way to recover it? I use it very often when unwanted
items pop up.
