    You may have a virus in the background. Some viruses shut down access to the task manager (so you can't access them in the running processes list and shut them down). Try running a few virus scans. We have a thread with a few scan programs if you don't have one on your computer.

    This is link to a download of Lavasoft Ad-Aware - a free spyware program that I run separately from my anti-virus.

    EDIT: Try running your virus scan and the ad-aware scan in Safe mode as well

    Don't worry about what other people think. They don't do it very often.

    Yes, I have the same problem, it says the administrator blocked it..
    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.
