Whenever I try to open my windows task manager it shows up for a second then
just disappears. I dont understnad why, it does it for me either way i try to
open it, using CTRL + ALT + DELETE or by right clicking and choosing windows
task manager. I also have another problem where whenever I use internet
exploror i get this box at the bottom showing xsdjc.offeroptimizer (something
like that) but i dont know how to get rid of it, if i click on it nothing
pops up or anything. I really need help with both of these problems.

Download, install, update, scan in safe mode, and delete the found malware:

Download this first and keep it handy in case your connection to the 'net is
damaged afterwards:

Then it's time to explore virus/trojan options. These are all free:

Virus:
www.grisoft.com - AVG
www.antivir.com - AntiVir
www.clamwin.com - ClamWin
http://www.my-etrust.com/microsoft/index.cfm - CA eTrust*

Trojan:
www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/
http://swatit.org/

All of these are free for home use. All of them are acceptable solutions to
your security needs.
Does not provide full real-time scanning engine.

*My understanding CA is available free for a limited time. Please note that
the page says this:
@Free software offer expires 2/1/05.@
The number of times it has been given out as a viable option leads me to
believe that this has been extended. You should, of course, verify this on
your own.

I'm afraid that's all I've got...

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=task+manager+won%2...

If you'll look there you will see that this is almost always related to
malware of some type, usually virus or spyware related. You've updated and
scanned and found nothing with any of them?
