    try booting up in safe mode, maybe you will be able to use your task manager there.

    Do you know where it is in your HD?

    Google&Download Process Explorer
    its basically the same thing as task manager, then search for something in process that looks suspicious.
    Also take a look through your start-up folder

    avg kinda blows nuts. well it&#39;s free, so you get what u pay for. Try spending the extra 45 bucks for a year of Trend Micro.

    If i were you, i&#39;d reboot to safe mode, unistall AVG. Istall the 30 day trial version of Trend Micro

    lemme know if that helps.
