MSCONFIG, REGEDIT and task manager won't work

September 23, 2011 at 15:26:14
Specs: Windows 7 Ultimate 64, E8600 8 gigs Ram
Hello everyone. Today I noticed that my task manager wouldn't work. I tried to open it, it opens for about 2 seconds then closes. I then tried regedit, same thing, so then I tried msconfig..same thing. I did some looking around and apparently it's a virus. Good ol' AVG letting things in. So I did a full scan with it, and then with MicroTrends HouseCall, and CWShredder. All came up clean. But I know there's a virus from the research I did. I ran HijackThis..here's my log (BTW..the .log file would flash open and then close too..Had to open it Notepad++).. Any idea what I can do??

Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.4

"Good ol' AVG letting things in"
Nothing is 100%, it is up to the user.

"But I know there's a virus from the research I did"
Correct.

Why does Task Manager, MSCONFIG, or REGEDIT disappear while opening?

Restart in Safe Mode, do a system restore to a date before you began having problems, then run Malwareytes, and restart to normal mode and see if this fixed things.
For a free AV prog, I prefer Avast, for my home systems I use Webroot Antivirus with Spysweeper, have for many years (package discounts for 3 & 5 machines).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I tried it out, didn't work. I took ownership of the the files and replaced them from another computer of mine (same OS), but didn't work. I also ran full scans in safe mode, and nothing was picked up by AVG, Adaware, HouseCall or MalwareBytes..I tried searching the registry (all work in safe mode) for entries that indicate certain viruses, but all was good..

Anything else maybe?
