    In my start menu there is the shut down button missing. I can't open the task
    manager window even. When I push ctrl+alt+del there is the sign down and the
    taskl manager button greyed out. ( I am german native speaker and have a
    german version of WinXP. )
    It is possible that the fault appeared after trying a new registry booster,
    which I deleted after running it. It's even possible that it appeared after
    updating, or is it the output of an virus?
    I am thankfull for any suggestion.
    Do I have to reinstall WinXP, or are there other possibilities?
    Thanks in advance

    Hello Streamn,

    System Restore
    I suppose you could also try System Restore using a checkpoint from before
    the instalation of the registry booster.

    Another very good antimalware app is Superantispyware.
    There is a fee version (on demand scanning only), the paid for version
    includes active monitoring, similar to Windows defender:

    Run a scan online with
    Windows Live Safety Center scan

    Ewido

    Kaspersky
    http://www.kaspersky.com/virusscanner

    Ñoot-kit detection

    Anyway , F-Secure uses Kaspersky's engine and definitions . F-Secure also
    uses Ad-Aware's definitions and engines .
