My computer has been very slow lately. I know it's because of spyware/adware,
and i have programs to deal with that. The problem is that i know there are
several programs running that i have no control over, programs that aren't
basic processes and i know how to close, but not stop from turning on when I
boot my computer up. I go to ctr+alt+del, then processes to close down any
suspicious programs, but recently, i lost the top of the Ctr+Alt+Del menu. I
cannot change to see what processes are running, or even Xout of the window,
i have to use ALT+F4 to do so.

Does anyone know why my CTR+ALT+DEL menu is on the fritz or how i can turn
off these processes that start up with my computer?
Thanks,

Open Task Manager and double-click anywhere on the top Windo­w border.
Somehow, you managed to convert Task Manager to run in "Tiny­ Footprint Mode".

By all means, clean the machine of all malware. Then check out my earlier
post MSCONFIG (2/28) and the response from Galen.
