Whenever I open my disk defragmenter or taskmanager, both programs quickly
close. It isn't because of a pop-up blocker, and there aren't any
notifications after they close. What's going on?

Anders,

This is usually caused by viruses/malware. Try Trend Micro's Sysclean
package (free), it's capable of eliminating keyloggers, trojans etc. Full

This didn't work. I downloaded Trend Micro and ran its scan. I also already
had McAfee. Taskmanager and disk defragmenter still won't open.
