Have you tried another keyboard?
Not entirely likely to help if running task manager by Ctrl Alt Del, Ctrl Shift Esc, right clicking the taskbar and running it via command prompt doesn't work, is it?

I'll scan using avasy in just a few minutes.
And Right clicking and hitting Task Manager and Run taskmgr doesnt work. BUT, the RUn one, says it is being used by another program.

One of my friends is having this exact same problem at the moment. Needless to say he's bringing me the machine on friday to have a look at and I intend on formatting it :D Almost certainly a virus or spyware of some description although I did get him to run a virus check and it came back clean :(

Not used Avast personally, but I'm not sure it'll help you. You want something more spyware oriented than virus oriented. Download a copy of the latest Windows Defender Beta, Spybot and/or Adaware.

can you open Regedit Or Msconfig ?

it is almost definately spyware.

Fastest way to get rid ( if your not sure ) is to download a copy of HijackThis from http://www.merijn.org/ .

Put it in its own folder then run a scan ( dont fix anything unless you know what your doing ), save the log. Then post the log on a PC security site, like the one in my sig ( but there are plenty more out there ).

Their spyware experts will then be able to see whats running on your system and tell you how to get rid.

Formatting should be a last alternative ( in my opinion). Unless you have an image of your pc.
