What AV program are u using? Did you scan for spyware? Is your OS up to date?

Anything found? You can try housecall at housecall.trendmicro.com, which is a free online virus scanner. Are AVG and ad-aware up to date as well?

this sounds somewhat similar to another type of worm that closes task manager, regedit, gpedit.msc, etc.

Try an online virus scanner as those often pick up viruses that are not detected by AVG, NAV, McAfee:

Another problem: When I open a video file (avi, divx), windows media player retarts and i'm forced back to desktop...

I think it's a codec porblem, ever since i installed nimo codec pack i've been experiencing this problem...I unistalled it...but still i have the porblem...what should I do?

btw i can play avi files in video lan fine

if you uninstalled your nimo codec try installing a new codec that is comparable to nimo or even reinstalling the nimo codec. ive used it for a long time and never had problems with it before. maybe you got a bad codec.
