windows security alert can't open taskmanager

October 6, 2009 at 21:15:32
Specs: Windows XP
computer starts up, i quickly click on mozilla firefox before = desktop gone, taskbar gone, windows security alert window in russian appears (which seems fake because i can't click on any of the buttons and the cursor looks different than it usually does when i mouse over any of the buttons), and can't open task manager.
and now i'm left with the internet that i managed to quickly open. is there a possibility of anyone knowing how to fix this? :(

have you tried safe mode yet? If you get into safe mode, start by removing all startup items and then reboot. Then if you can get on-line you can start by downloading and starting with these progs in this order:
1- Ccleaner slim- remove all it finds and also click on the registry icon and remove all it finds
2- malwarebytes- update and do a quick scan
3- spybot- update, then run that, also immunize (I don't use the tea timer setting, you can uncheck that if you want
Start with that and let us know how you are making out
