Well, I've clicked on a link "http://www.transusacorp.com/bestfriends.scr" (I highly reccomend on not clicking that link), and I believe I've gotten a virus/worm from it. I can open up task manager, but only for a few miliseconds, and when I reboot two applications of Windows Explorer Launches. I've renamed tskmanager.exe to taskmger.com and I can open it up, and it will stay launched. I've searched all of my tasks and I can't seem to find one that doesn't belong. I've run Ad-Aware, Spybot Search And Destroy, Spy Sweeper, and Norton Anti Virus and nothing seems to work. Any help would be greatly appreciated. BTW I'm sorry if this has been posted before, I've searched and couldn't find nothing.

do you use the system recovery...might be an option.

if all else fails..i see a reformat in your future! (as a note..i would never trust anything ending in .scr)

Backup anything you need onto an external drive(would a recovery affect it?) and if needed unplug it from your computer. Or use disks. Depending on wether your going to recover or reformat, backup as needed.
