Re: Task manager and auto updates are disabled
Why does Task Manager, MSCONFIG, or REGEDIT disappear while opening?
http://windowsxp.mvps.org/ToolsQuit.htm

You could even have the malware "Vundo"
http://www.microsoft.com/security/po...=Win32%2fVundo

Suggest you consider doing a complete scan of your system just to make sure you haven't
any viruses, trojans, malware before trying to get updates.

I''ll bet you dollars to doughnuts that you've got a Vundo infection,
accompanied by ZLOB and SDBot infections, all protected by a rootkit. No
anti-virus or anti-spyware application alone is gonna fix this.

Run a /thorough/ check for hijackware, including posting your hijackthis log
to an appropriate forum.

http://defendingyourmachine2.blogspot.com/
http://www.elephantboycomputers.com/...moving_Malware

When all else fails, HijackThis v2.0.2
(http://aumha.org/downloads/hijackthis.exe) is the preferred tool to use.
It will help you to both identify and remove any hijackware/spyware with
assistance from an expert. **Post your log to
http://forums.spybot.info/forumdisplay.php?f=22,
http://castlecops.com/forum67.html,
http://forums.subratam.org/index.php?showforum=7,
http://aumha.net/viewforum.php?f=30, or other appropriate forums for review
by an expert in such matters, not here.**

If the procedures look too complex - and there is no shame in admitting this
isn't your cup of tea - take the machine to a local, reputable and
independent (i.e., not BigBoxStoreUSA) computer repair shop.
